Police have arrested a Sussex man after a series of break and enters in the community.

Officers responded to a report of a person unlawfully at a residence on Freeze Court on Dec. 6.

“The individual left the scene before police arrived, however, a subsequent investigation identified a 37-year-old man as a person of interest,” RCMP said in a news release.

On Dec. 25, police responded to break and enters at two residences on Pitt Street.

Investigators allege the same person was responsible for both of them.

Then on Jan. 7, a report of a break and enter came in from Lansdowne Avenue.

“While investigating, police located the 37-year-old man nearby, and arrested him without incident,” said the release.

Officers searched the man and seized stolen property, quantities of crystal meth, and a prohibited firearm.

The accused appeared in court on Jan. 8 and was charged with:

  • Break, enter and theft
  • Possession of a prohibited firearm with ammunition
  • Possession of a prohibited firearm
  • Possession of a firearm while prohibited
  • Breach of probation
