A Regina man is facing several charges after a string of break and enters, resulting in copper theft.
Between January 14th and March 18th, ten vacant properties, mainly in the city’s North Central, were broken into. During the incidents, copper piping was stolen from the properties. The estimated damage is expected to be more than $50,000.
Regina Police arrested a man they believed to be responsible for the thefts. At the time of his arrest, the man was in possession of copper piping and break and enter tools.
31-year-old Julian James Gambler has been charged with 10 counts of break and entering to commit theft, trafficking property obtained by crime, possession of break-in instruments, and theft under $5,000.
Gambler made his first appearance in court Friday morning.
