A Mississauga man faces multiple charges for his involvement in a series of recent break and enters in both Burlington and Oakville.

During the night of May 3, 2013 the accused and other suspects attended the Appleby Opticals, 2180 Itabashi Way, Burlington, smashed through the front door and stole a quantity of glasses frames.

Later, at 2:19 a.m., the accused and associates broke into the Walkers Medical Centre, 1821 Walkers Line, Burlington, and stole a quantity of medicinal items.

At 2:35 a.m., a break and enter occurred at the Bell Store, 2475 Appleby Line, Burlington.  The accused and other suspects smashed through the front door and stole cash.

At 2:45 a.m., a break and enter occurred at the Telus Mobility Store, 2501 Third Line, Oakville.  Again, the accused and associates smashed through the front door and removed tools and cash from within.

Following this entry, a uniformed police officer, in a marked police cruiser was diligently conducting commercial premise checks when he came across the incident.  An interaction took place between the lone officer and multiple suspects during which time they drove their vehicle towards the officer, subsequently colliding with it.  During the life-threatening encounter, the officer discharged his firearm.

An individual was arrested at the scene while the accused and the other suspect fled on foot.  The vehicle utilized by the suspects had been previously stolen from Oakville in April.

The accused was arrested in Peel Region and additional investigation to date has implicated him in at least two prior Oakville entries on April 25th:

Bell Store – 2525 Hampshire Gate
Telus Mobility Store – 2501 Third Line
