A 17-year-old has been charged in connection to a series of break and enters in Oromocto, N.B., on Thursday.

Police say they received multiple reports of break and enters during overnight hours at several businesses. Officers began an investigation and were able to get a photo of the suspect involved.

Later in the day, the RCMP received a report of an arson within the community. Police say a witness gave them a description of the suspect, which matched the one from the series of break and enters.

Police later located and arrested a 17-year-old in connection with the investigation.

He appeared in provincial court in Fredericton on Saturday and was charged with:

  •  break and enter (three counts)
  •  mischief under $5,000 (two counts)
  •  possession of break in equipment
  •  attempted theft of a vehicle

The 17-year-old was remanded into custody and is set to return to court on Tuesday.

Police say the investigation is ongoing.
