A spy camera video of a man ransacking a cabin in the Upper Clyde area earlier this year has resulted in charges of break and enter and possession of stolen property for a former Shelburne County resident.

The video, which runs six minutes and 17 seconds, is making the rounds on Facebook and YouTube and shows a heavyset man entering a cabin.

He puts on gloves and searches the cupboards and floors, collects items on a counter, and leaves with the loot, returning once to pick up one last item.

Barrington RCMP Sgt. Bob Forbes said it took police some time to identify the suspect.

“We didn’t know him,” he said. “But it is certainly good evidence.”

Todd Bryan Goulden, 47, of Yarmouth, was arraigned Thursday in Barrington provincial court on three charges of break and enter and another three charges of possession of stolen property in the case.

While the spy camera video is an important part of the evidence in the case, Forbes said police have also recovered several stolen items.

Camp owner Gary Goreham, of Pubnico, said his Upper Clyde River camp, like many in the area, was being broken into on an almost annual basis. Several times items had been stolen, and during one earlier break-in the camp’s kitchen was vandalized.

“I figured enough is enough,” he said, and Goreham set up a spy camera at a cost of about $500.
