Man faces 32 charges related to break and enters

Investigators with the General Investigation Section of the Integrated Criminal Investigation Division have charged a Dartmouth man in relation to numerous break and enters in Halifax and Dartmouth.

Since December 1 detectives have been investigating a number of break and enters into private residences in Halifax’s south end and in Dartmouth. Items taken during the break and enters include electronic devices, computers, televisions, firearms, jewelry, credit cards, vehicle keys and money. Through the course of the investigation, evidence gathered led officers to believe there was one person responsible for all incidents.

On December 19 at approximately 8 p.m., officers assigned to the Quick Response Unit arrested 33-year-old Jason Allie Cole in relation to 10 break and enters that occurred between November 23 and December 14 – seven in the Highfield Park Drive/Joseph Young Street area in Dartmouth and three on Tower Road in Halifax.

Cole was in possession of a weapon and resisted officers during the arrest.

Cole is scheduled to appear in Dartmouth Provincial Court today to face the following charges:

  • Eight counts each of break and enter
  • Nine counts each of possession of stolen goods
  • Two counts each of:

o possession of break in tools

o fail to appear

o possession of firearm contrary to prohibition order
