A 22-year-old man has been charged with over 100 criminal offences in relation to a series of residential break-ins, vehicle entries, and mail thefts in Markham.
On April 6, a residential break-in that occurred at a home on Walkerville Road, in the area of Cornell Park Avenue and Bur Oak Avenue, was reported to police.
According to law enforcement, the suspect involved was described as being an Asian male, who appeared to be 5’6″, and wearing dark clothing.
As the investigation progressed, officers were able to link the suspect to other criminal offences that happened in the area, based on the same physical characteristics.
