A 16-year-old male will appear in youth court next month after Halifax RCMP say they responded to a complaint of vehicles being broken into on Tillock Drive in Lower Sackville.

Police say three males were involved, with the incidents taking place just after 4 a.m. Saturday. When officers arrived, police say three males were running down Prince Street and separated.

A K-9 unit was brought in and picked up the scent of one suspect, who was located in a wooden area behind the Rudder Duck car wash on Sackville Drive.

Police say the 16-year-old had a backpack with stolen items from the vehicles inside.
