Charlottetown Police Services Patrol Officers with the assistance of the Street Crime Unit have arrested a 33 year old male in relation to the spike in property crime offences over the last few weeks.
At 1:30 am this morning, Police were called to the St Peters Road area in response to a male attempting to use a credit card believed to have been stolen. Police were able to locate the male a short distance away and he attempted to flee on a bicycle. A foot chase ensued and the suspect was caught and arrested. The male has been charged with 3 counts of theft under $5000, 3 counts of failing to comply with an Undertaking and one count of possession of property obtained by crime. Other charges are pending.
The male was also wanted on an arrest warrant issued on August 29th.
The accused will appear in Provincial Court later today for a remand hearing.
