Two men are in custody facing numerous charges related to five break ins around Shediac dating back to early last year.

A 25-year-old man from Scoudouc and a 29-year-old man from Shediac River face charges including breaking and entering, theft under $5,000, possession of property obtained by crime, and unsafe storage of a firearm.

Shediac RCMP say they arrested the men after responding to a report of a break in Jan. 21. 

They then obtained a search warrant at a home in Scoudouc and seized substances believed to be cocaine and marijuana.

Police say they also found an unsecured firearm, computers, cell phones, televisions and musical instruments, along with other items. They are now looking for help identifying the recovered items.

RCMP are asking anyone that's been a victim of a break in Shediac and the surrounding areas to contact them. 

Both of the accused are scheduled to appear in court Jan. 29.
