Kingston Police posted the following report earlier today:

A 30-year-old local man has been arrested after a lengthy investigation yesterday morning into numerous thefts from cars.

Officers were kept busy yesterday morning investigating more than a dozen car break-ins over Wednesday night. The parking lots and private drive-ways which were targeted were outer Princess Street, Gardiners Road, Midland Avenue and Jennifer Court.

In most cases, the cars were left unlocked but windows were smashed from a couple of them to access the valuables inside. Items taken included wallets, credit cards, laptops, cash, sunglasses and camera equipment.

The accused was captured on security video and readily identified. He was located yesterday afternoon on Division Street and transported to police headquarters where he was held to attend a bail hearing the following day.

The accused was charged with trespass at night, theft, possession of stolen property, damage to property, breach of probation, and breach of release conditions.

Once again, Police want to stress the importance of locking vehicles and not leaving valuables inside. Fortunately in this case, the officers were able to recover the property and return it to the owners.
