Two men arrested after a string of break and enters in Nelson and Castlegar have been sent to jail after pleading guilty.
Kyle Hodson, 19, and Phillip Helgren, 20, both of Kelowna appeared in court where they admitted to five burglaries.
Both were sentenced to three months in jail followed by three years probation.
The stolen money and property from the crimes has been recovered and will be returned to its owners.
RCMP say Chatters Salon, Downward Dog, and Ariah’s Organic Foods in Nelson were among the victims last week.
Police arrested the suspects after a witness spotted them trying to break into a Castlegar business.
