Ontario Burglars Apologize & Offer To Pay For Damages After Breaking Into The Wrong Home
One duo found themselves in a pretty awkward situation last Friday.
A pair of Ontario burglars were apologetic after they discovered that they accidentally broke into the wrong house.
The two men realized that they had broken into the wrong address and left the home without further incident after apologizing and offering to pay for the damage.

According to Sarnia police, the suspects broke into a 700 block Kipling Street home around 7:15 p.m. on December 11, 2020.
Its owners, who were watching T.V. at the time, described hearing a "loud bang" before being confronted by two individuals.
One of the suspects was reportedly wielding a hammer and asking for money that was owed to him.
The tense situation then astoundingly deescalated after the burglars realized they were in the wrong place.
The criminals, who were apologetic, even offered to pay for the damages before leaving the home.
Police later received a tip and arrested the suspects without incident.
Deanis John Smith, 27, of Keswick and Cameron Joseph Kemmis, 27, of Sarnia, are facing charges of break and enter, mischief under $5000, and possession of weapons dangerous.
