Toronto police have charged a 54-year-old man in connection with an August break and enter in York, where he allegedly left behind a photocopy of his face.
On August 23, officers were called to Dufferin St. and Ridelle Ave., just north of Roselawn Ave., for a break and enter.
Police allege that a man had entered a commercial establishment in the area and ate some food items, leaving behind scraps.
The man allegedly took a photocopy of his face and left it in the property.
In a Friday press release, police said Gary Samuel Lambe, of Toronto, has been charged with breaking and entering and failing to comply with probation.
Lambe was arrested on August 31 on “an unrelated matter,” said police. He was scheduled to appear in court at Old City Hall on August 31 at 10 a.m., in room 101, said the news release.
Police said that the 54-year-old had been identified due to tips and information provided by the community.
