Theft of guns from Niagara Bass Pro Shops leads to arrest

A Niagara Falls man has been arrested following a break-in at the Bass Pro Shops store in Niagara-on-the-Lake this week.

Niagara Regional Police said a man smashed a glass window out of a garage door Monday at the Taylor Road store, next to the Outlet Collection at Niagara mall, then left in a Ford pickup truck without entering the store.

The suspect returned early Tuesday morning and forced his way into the store. He fled the scene in the same pickup after grabbing five firearms and other merchandise.

Investigation revealed the truck had been stolen from a Ford dealership in Toronto while it was awaiting service.

At about 9:20 a.m. Tuesday, detectives located the stolen truck at a Dixon Street residence in Niagara Falls. A man who lived in the home was subsequently arrested and police seized the truck. After detectives got a search warrant, the five stolen firearms and other Bass Pro items were recovered from the home.

Detectives also discovered property believed stolen from a Niagara Falls chiropractor’s office on March 17.

Facing a combined 17 charges is 27-year-old Jason Persaud.
