A Scarborough man faces several charges following a reported break and enter in the City of Kawartha Lakes on Wednesday.
City of Kawartha Lakes OPP say officers responded to reports of a break and enter in progress at a residence on Portage Road near Kirkfield, about 40 kilometres north of Lindsay.
OPP say witnesses told officers an unknown man was seen removing a television from a home, which was reportedly unoccupied at the time.
“While en route, officers observed the suspect’s vehicle and were able to get it stopped,” Const. Carrie Lanning said.
