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.
