Investigators were able to use the tracking software in a stolen electronic device to find a suspect in a nearby parking lot.

A man broke into a home near Scugog St. and Ella St. in Port Perry on Sept. 24. Durham Regional Police did not share all of what he stole but did note he made off with an unspecified electronic device.

This device carried tracking software to find it if it was lost or stolen. Investigators used this software to track the device to a nearby parking where they found a man who had the stuff missing from the house.

They arrested a 43-year-old man of no fixed address on charges of possession of break-in tools, possession of stolen property over $5,000, and break and enter.
