A man is facing various charges following a Monday break and enter that resulted in the theft of a substantial amount of copper wire.
Members of the Prince Albert Police Service went to a business in the 3900 block of Fifth Avenue East for a break and enter to a compound that took place sometime over the weekend.
The suspect, or suspects, had gained entrance to the compound and stolen a large amount of copper wire that was loaded onto trucks.
On the same day, police received a tip from the public about a suspect who might be responsible for the crime.
As a result of this tip, police initiated a traffic stop adjacent to a business located on Highway 3 south. The vehicle occupant, a 27-year-old male, was found to be in possession of property related to the break and enter.
The 27-year-old man has subsequently been charged with break, enter and commit, possession of stolen property and possession of property obtained by crime.
