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.
