WINDSOR - Two Windsor men stand accused of committing a number of offences relating to break and enters or thefts.

Leonard Wade Greenough, 24, and William Brian Farrow, 29, have both been charged with two counts of break and enter, two counts of theft under $5,000, two counts of possessing property obtained by crime, and single counts of possessing a break-in instrument and unauthorized possession of a firearm.

The charges stem from incidents alleged to have occurred in Windsor on Jan. 29, Feb. 22, Feb. 26, March 1 and March 6.

It is alleged the men took a donation box with change in it from a Tim Hortons location in Windsor Jan. 29, stole a firearm during a break-in at a home on Underwood Drive March 1, and broke into the Windsor Hantsport Railway Inc. Property on Water Street Feb. 22, the same place the pair is accused of later stealing scrap metal from on Feb. 26.

Greenough is also in court on one charge of knowingly transferring a non-restricted firearm without authorization.

None of the charges have been proven in court.

Greenough is due to return to Windsor provincial court April 3 for election and plea. Farrow is scheduled to reappear March 27 for a show cause hearing and possible election and plea.
