Toronto man charged with 10 counts of break-and-enter

A man has been arrested and charged after several break-and-enters that took place between July and December, Toronto police say.

Toronto police said between July 24 and Dec. 7, officers received “several calls” for break-and-enters in the Matilda and Carroll streets area, near Broadview Avenue and Queen Street East.

A suspect allegedly got into an underground parking garage and, once inside, would cut locks off of bicycles and flee with them.

On Dec. 8, officers received a call about a break-in, this time in the area of Main Street and Danforth Avenue.
