Suspect in multiple break and enters arrested

Vehicles in Parksville area also targeted by suspect

They shouldn’t relax their guard too much, but drivers in the Parksville-Qualicum area can breath just a little easier this week with the news that a suspect in multiple break and enters into cars has been arrested in Nanaimo.

The 34-year-old man is suspected in multiple break and enters in both Oceanside and Nanaimo. The break in the case came on Dec. 11, when Nanaimo RCMP watched surveillance video from an underground parking lot in the 1600 block of Dufferin Crescent in Nanaimo after the lot suffered a break and enter to 26 storage lockers and vehicles. Police said the surveillance video clearly showed two men and a woman enter the underground parking lot at the time of the thefts. Police executed a search warrant at a man’s home the following day and made an arrest. A 32-year-old Nanaimo man and 37-year-old Nanaimo woman were also arrested for possession of stolen property.
