Hanover police used a heat-source device to find a suspect wanted in connection with a break-in at a commercial property early Saturday.

Police, including West Grey officers, were called to the property around 1 a.m about a break-in in progress at the Industrial Park in Hanover.

They say a suspect moved from one commercial unit into another within the same building before entering the attic.

Police say a suspect was hiding under loose insulation.

The suspect was arrested for break and enter and lowered down two levels with the use of ladders to the ground floor.

  • Break and enter with intent X 2

  • Possession of property obtained by crime
  • Mischief over $5,000
  • Possession of weapon dangerous to public peace
