RCMP say a resident spotted a man peering into vehicles this morning, Dec. 10, on Courtney Cresent and called police.

The man fled the scene when police arrived but was tracked down by Zak the police dog, according to a media release.

RCMP recovered a backpack from the suspect, which contained numerous items, including several wallets, officers believe where stolen from cars. 

The 19-year-old arrested will be in court at a later date to face charges.

Several people have been arrested recently for stealing from vehicles.
