Police have charged a Dartmouth man in relation to seven break and enters over the last five months.

Robert Gordon Reid, 36, was scheduled to appear in Dartmouth Provincial Court yesterday to face a total of 14 charges.

On June 7, members of the Halifax Regional Police/RCMP East Quick Response Unit say they observed a man acting suspiciously and approaching several homes. While the man did not enter any of the homes, police say they determined his behaviour to be consistent with attempting to break and enter.

The suspect was arrested without incident on June 18 on seven charges of attempted break and enter.

According to Halifax Regional Police spokesman Const. Brian Palmeter, further investigation resulted in charges relating to seven break and enters between Feb. 1 and June 16.

“(Police) made further inquiries, they spoke to homeowners,” he said. “After getting it all together in consultation with the Crown, they determined that his (alleged) actions were criminal in nature.”
