Winnipeg police have charged a man they say was responsible for breaking into multiple construction sites and selling the items at pawn shops.
More than $5,000 in tools were stolen on August 19 when a storage container at a construction site was broken into in the 1100 block of Portage Avenue.
Two of the stolen items were sold to a local pawn shop two days later.
On October 6, various construction tools were taken from a utility trailer in the 100 block of St. Anne’s Road.
The man then allegedly sold some of the items to another pawn shop between October 7-10.
Police were able to identify a suspect and spotted him on Monday driving in the area of Dufferin Avenue and King Street.
Wesley Dean Munro, 37, was arrested and faces break, enter and theft charges.
