Two men have been remanded into police custody following a break-in at the Kenora District Services Board over the holidays.

On Dec. 29, two men entered the building via a window and offices in the front part of the building were forcibly entered and ransacked. A safe was opened and the money inside taken with the damage to the building and furnishings being extensive. KDSB staff worked over the New Year compiling a list of other items that were taken, and would like to assure the public that no personal information was stolen or compromised as a result of this incident.

Dryden Police have laid charges against two males who appeared in bail court charged with break, enter and theft and possession of stole property, Dec. 31. Both were remanded into custody and some of the stolen property has been recovered.

“Our top priority and primary concerns was to ensure that the personal information of our clients and employees remained secure and protected,” said Kenora District Services Board Chief Administrative Officer Henry Wall. “Our investigation concluded that the security of our data and information was not breached. It appears that the vandals targeted electronic equipment and other tangible valuables. Our building and offices sustained extensive damage. We want to thank the Dryden Police Service for all their help and support during this time. The officers did an excellent job”
