On Oct. 19 around 5:30 a.m., members of the Kenora OPP responded to a break-and-enter in progress in the south side of Kenora.
Police attended and were advised that the home owner had located the suspect inside the detached garage.
Entry was not gained into the main residence.
The male was arrested at the scene and transported to the detachment.
A 25-year-old Fort Frances man subsequently was charged with break and enter to commit an indictable offence.
He was scheduled to appear in court in Kenora yesterday.
