Live surveillance footage of suspicious vehicle at Drover's Ridge cabin leads Glovertown RCMP to man's arrest.

Over the past month, Glovertown RCMP has received several reports of break, enter and thefts from local cabin areas. Early this morning, a 26-year-old man from the Eastport Peninsula was arrested for theft following a report of suspicious activity captured on a live surveillance camera at a cabin in the area of Drover's Ridge.

At approximately 3:15 a.m., Glovertown RCMP received a report from a cabin owner stating that one of their live cameras was capturing a suspicious vehicle at their property. The owner advised that an individual was also captured stealing another camera from the property.

Police responded and located the described vehicle on Drover's Ridge Road. A traffic stop was conducted and the driver was found in possession of the stolen surveillance camera, as well as a number of other suspected stolen items. The man was arrested and later released from police custody. He is scheduled to attend court on January 11, 2022, to answer to a charge of theft.

The investigation is continuing.
