BELLEVILLE – Two men have been arrested by Quinte West OPP [2] after a break-in at a video-game store early Monday morning.

Officers were called to EB Games on 2nd Dug Hill Road in Carrying Place at around 6:30 a.m. after a report of an alarm going off at the store, police say. When officers arrived, they noticed signs of a break-in and saw people fleeing the scene of the crime, an OPP press release said.

The OPP’s Emergency Response Team [3] and canine units [4] were called in to track down the suspects. One man was caught and arrested around 9 a.m. and a second was arrested around noon after police received reports of a suspicious person in the area.

The investigation is ongoing and police are unable to release any information about whether anything was stolen or whether the OPP is looking for other suspects, Const. David Ludington told QNet News.
