Prolific break-and-enter pair arrested, face 70 charges

Two chronic offenders are facing 70 separate charges related to a spate of commercial break-ins that took place in Vancouver and surrounding communities during the past few months.

Vancouver police say Burnaby men Shane Duhamel, 44, and Jesse Palanio, 33, were both arrested over a month ago and remain in custody.

“We believe that the arrest of these two suspects and the subsequent charge approval will have a major impact on commercial break-ins around the city,” said Sgt. Aaron Roed.

Duhamel is charged with 14 counts of break-and-enter; two counts of possession of break-in instruments; one count of disguise with intent; and 23 counts related to failure to comply with probation and release orders.

Palanio is facing seven counts of break-and-enter; three counts of possession of stolen property; one count of possession of a prohibited weapon; two counts each of possession of credit card data, possession of ID documents and theft under $5,000; and 13 counts of failure to comply with release order. 

Police have reported a rise in commercial break-and-enters in Vancouver since the COVID-19 pandemic was first declared, as thieves began targeting the many stores that are now closed or vacant.

Roed said businesses should take measures to protect themselves by moving property out of view, using shutters and by upgrading locks and lighting.
