Man charged with theft after attempting to return stolen property

Halifax District RCMP has arrested a man in relation to three theft investigations.

On November 8, Halifax District RCMP received reports of three break-ins that occurred at three construction sites located on Tuscany Run in Timberlea. RCMP officers learned that the break-ins, occurred sometime between October 28 and November 5, and resulted in the theft of construction materials and tools valued at more than $2,000.

The investigations led RCMP officers to a business in Hammonds Plains where a man had attempted to return stolen property. Through surveillance footage, obtained by RCMP officers, a man who is known to police was identified. 

Yesterday, RCMP officers located the 47-year-old Fall River man at his home and safely arrested him.

He was held in custody and will attend Halifax Provincial Court later today to face charges of Possession of Property Obtained by Crime and Failure to Comply with a Release Order.
