A 19-year-old man, originally from Gasgapegiag, Quebec, is facing six charges following a series of incidents in Perth-Andover, N.B.
At approximately 11:50 a.m. on Nov. 27, members of the Perth-Andover RCMP received a report of a break, enter and theft on Terrace street. Shortly after, police received a second report of a stolen pickup truck from the area.
