East Hants RCMP have charged a New Brunswick man after a number of vehicles were stolen in New Brunswick and Nova Scotia.

RCMP say on December 27, the 31-year-old suspect attempted to steal a tow truck from a business in Elmsdale. He arrived in a dump truck and left in the same vehicle.

A short time later, a pickup truck had been stolen from a property in Lantz and a dump truck, matching the same description was left at the property. It had been stolen in Memramcook, earlier in the day.

Similar reports came in for several days after the fact.

The suspect from Trois Ruisseaux, was arrested Sunday night on Highway 102 in Lantz after a brief police chase.

He will be in court, Tuesday morning facing charges including, but not limited to:

Breaking and Entering, Possession of Property Obtained by Crime, Theft over 5,000, Theft under 5,000, and Flight from a Peace Officer.
