Local Mounties caught up to a man suspected to be behind several condo break-ins earlier this month, and in the process they got some bonus materials.

A pipe, an undisclosed quantity of methamphetamine, a small bag of gold and a scale were found in the white pickup truck that was pulled over on Houghton Road Thursday afternoon.

The 27-year-old driver, who was wanted in connection to break-ins at two condo buildings July 1, was accompanied by another man, 38, and a woman, also in her 30s.

Another man wanted in connection to the break-in is still at large, said Const. Steve Holmes.

“At around 1:30 a.m. July 1, the two suspects broke into a condo on Durnin Road and into a number of storage lockers,” said Holmes.

“A substantial amount of items were stolen, such as personal items, electronics and sports equipment.”

A second apartment building was broken into at that same site, and the same two suspects were believed to be involved.

At the scene of the crime a white truck was spotted, and it’s since been under surveillance, said Holmes, noting that Thursday’s arrests by the property crimes unit was related to that investigation.
