In an unrelated arrest, police raided a Simcoe Street home Tuesday and arrested a Winnipeg man they suspect of involvement in more than a dozen commercial robberies and break-and-enter incidents dating back to last November.

The thefts, which include items as varied as multiple snowblowers, fireplaces, an ice auger, gift cards, and cash, totalled more than $30,000 in value, police said. Damage caused by the break-ins is estimated at more than $23,000.

Police said they also searched a second residence linked to the man, 32, and found clothing that was worn during the offences.

The suspect has been charged with five counts of robbery, nine counts of breaking, entering and theft, 10 counts of theft under $5,000, as well as breaking and entering with intent, and resisting a peace officer.
