A Calgary man is in custody and faces charges related to a series of break and enters following a months long investigation by RCMP.
Investigators believe the incidents began in August, when Cochrane RCMP officers were dispatched to a break and enter in Rocky View County where a truck and a large quantity of jewelry was stolen. A few months later, a man who police believe was involved in the break and enter purchased a vehicle with a cheque that was stolen from the home.
In October and November, police believe the same man was involved in six other break and enters in Rocky View and Foothills counties. During those incidents, jewelry, cash and other items were stolen.
At the last break and enter in Foothills County on Nov. 15, one of the men prowling area residences in the early morning hours was captured on CCTV and identified.
