A 43 year-old man is facing five charges after he allegedly broke into three residences in the Ivy Lake subdivision of Grande Prairie, between Saturday and Sunday.

The charges include Break, Enter and Commit Theft and Possession of Stolen Property over $5,000.

RCMP in Grande Prairie say they received a call about a break and enter at around 5:20 p.m. on Saturday at one of the residences. They say the man allegedly stole jewelry, vehicle keys and various other items, then went into a nearby garage taking several items, including a duffle bag.

The suspect then tried to enter a third home at around 12:25 a.m. on Sunday, but was scared away by the residents. He was later arrested in a nearby backyard.

Police have not released the suspect’s name but say he is currently in custody at the Grande Prairie detachment.
