Police have charged an alleged burglar in Brampton wanted for a months-long string of break-and-enters.

The Peel Regional Police say multiple residences in Brampton’s westside were broken into between July and November.

The culprit stole property from the homes during the break-ins, police said, but did not disclose what items were taken.

After months of investigating, police made an arrest on Wednesday (Nov. 23).
