Greater Sudbury Police used fingerprints found at a crime scene to charge a 21-year-old Keewatin Court man with a series of crimes.

On July 22, police attended the scene of a break-and-enter at Trimac Transportation Services on Maley Drive in Sudbury. Computer, office and communication equipment, valued at about $15,000, had been stolen sometime during that weekend.

A fingerprint match confirmed the Sudbury man charged was at the scene at the time of the incident.

The accused is charged with break and enter, and breach of probation.

The same young male is also charged with an incident that occurred on Sept. 19 on Lasalle Boulevard. At that time, he was found in possession of a stolen Dodge pickup truck and guitars, amplifiers and tuners valued at around $9,000, as well as 57 fleece sweatshirts valued at $1,140 and linens valued at $10,000.

This merchandise has been stolen from a train boxcar on Sept. 18 in Cartier, just north of Levack. The Dodge truck had been stolen the previous day in Sudbury.

Also charged in relation to the Sept. 19 thefts is a 20-year-old Lasalle Boulevard man and a 16-year-old young offender.

All three will appear on charges of possession of stolen property later in October.
