A teenage boy has been charged with multiple crimes after a police investigation into multiple 16th Street break and enters.
The Brandon Police Service major crime unit started an investigation after learning a 17-year-old was selling power tools on social media.
On Wednesday afternoon, police found the teen at his residence. A search of the property turned up a number of power tools, lawn equipment, cash and a bicycle. The items were allegedly taken from three different break-ins last month on 16th Street.
Police also found a number of pellet pistols and rifles, which the teen was on an order not to possess.
He was charged with two counts of break and enter, three counts of possession of poverty obtained by crime and possession of firearms contrary to a prohibition order.
He is scheduled to appear in court in October.
