East Division units were called to the 0-100 Block of Joffre Street in Dartmouth shortly after 9:00 am this morning in response to a report of a man loading up a trailer with the content of a nearby home.
Upon officer arrival they determined the 49 year old Dartmouth man had broken into a home and was stealing many of its contents.
Officers commenced an investigation which eventually led to a Hastings Drive residence where a 48 year old man was located who was in possession of more stolen property believed to be from the Joffre Street home.
The 49 year old man is being held for court on Monday on two charges of break and enter, and one charge of possession of stolen property over $5000.00.
The 48 year old man was arrested and released on paperwork to appear in court at a later date to answer to the charge of possession of stolen property under $5000.00.
