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.

On Feb. 14, police arrested 26-year-old Eliot Kasongo. He was subsequently charged with one count of attempting to break and enter and six counts of breach of probation.

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

Anyone with further information is asked to call investigators in the 11 Division Criminal Investigation Bureau at  (905) 453–2121, ext. 1133.
