OTTAWA - The Ottawa Police Service Break & Enter Unit have charged Martin Dupuis, 34 years old of Ottawa in relation to the two break-ins which occurred in Sandy Hill on September 29, 2013.
Dupuis was arrested this morning by Patrol officers after a warrant was issued for his arrest. He has been charged with:
