For Immediate Release: 21-Feb-2020 @ 2:45 PM
MRU #: 20R014-1

Brandon Okimaw, 25, and Caitlin Dvorak, 22, were arrested on Feb. 20, 2020 in relation to an extensive break-and-enter series.

The two suspects are alleged to be responsible for a spree that began on Jan. 13, 2020 and involved at least 15 break-and-enters to apartment and condo building parkades and two break-and-enters to businesses.

It was reported to police that the suspects would gain access to the underground parking garages before smashing vehicle windows and removing valuables found inside. In three instances, vehicles were also stolen, all three of which have since been recovered.

Okimaw is facing 51 charges related to break-and-enter, while Dvorak faces 49 break-and-enter-related charges.

The EPS sent out a previous news release requesting public assistance to locate Okimaw and Dvorak on Feb. 14, 2020, when warrants were issued for their arrest.
