Devon William Patrick Shubert, 25, was picked up Monday night, and he's been in custody ever since.

Police say he first came to their attention after they responded to an early-morning alarm at the theatre and spotted a man inside. Although the suspect ducked out a back door and managed to get away, surveillance video led police to Shubert later that day.

They say other businesses in the area had noticed a man lurking about and apparently trying to get into unauthorized areas.

Now, police say they've linked Shubert to two additional break-and-enters in Brandon.

A suspect matching his description allegedly entered two businesses — once on Jan. 18 and once on Jan 20 — with apparent intent to steal. On one occasion, the suspect fled the business when approached by staff, however he was successful in entering the office at a second business and stealing about $500 in cash from there.

Police also say that on Tuesday, they found a stolen vehicle that had been abandoned in the parking lot of the Sunset Plaza strip mall at 34th Street and Victoria Avenue. The vehicle had been stolen from Broadview, Sask., and police say they found its ignition key on Shubert when they arrested him.

Shubert, who is alleged to have previously given police a false name, was charged earlier with break and enter, breach of recognizance and public mischief. Now, he faces two more break-and-enter charges, plus a charge of possession of property obtained by crime.

He is scheduled to apear in court on Monday.
