A Mississauga man is facing charges in connection with an attempted break and enter investigation.

Peel police say a tip from the public led to the suspect's arrest.   

Police say that on Monday, Nov. 13, a man allegedly attempted to gain access to a residence in the Erin Centre Boulevard and Churchill Meadows Boulevard area.  

His image was captured on the homeowner's surveillance camera.

On January 12, a news release with images of the suspect was sent out to the public. In early February, a Crime Stoppers tip was received that police say helped identify the suspect.

He was held for a bail hearing on Feb. 15.
