Home security camera helps Ottawa police arrest suspect in Rockcliffe Park break-ins
OTTAWA -- A home security camera helped Ottawa police track down a suspect in connection to a series of break and enters in the Rockcliffe Park area.
Between Oct. 21 and Oct. 26, police say the suspect broke into several homes, targeting small portable items.
"The suspect was captured on video surveillance camera. His description was disseminated to Frontline officers for identification," said police in a statement on Thursday afternoon.
On Wednesday, the Market Neighbourhood Resource Team officers located a man matching the description of the suspect.
"He was arrested and found to be in possession of property that was taken during these break-ins," said police.
