Three people are facing charges after breaking in to a Niagara Falls business through the roof.

Niagara Regional Police officials responded to a break and enter alarm on Stanley Avenue near Kitchener Street in Niagara Falls on June 16th.

Niagara Regional Police also obtained a search warrant for an Ottawa Avenue home where property related to the break and enter was found.

The NRP have charged 20 year old Chase Brian Belward of no fixed address, 49 year old Denise Charmaine Taylor of Niagara Falls, and 40 year old Joseph Francis Rudgene of Niagara Falls with break and enter and commit theft to place other than dwelling.
