Charges have been laid after a series of break-and-enters and thefts at Camosun College and the University of Victoria.
Police said there were five thefts from lockers at Camosun College in late November and four break-and-enters at UVic between Dec. 9-12.
Investigators were able to obtain evidence from the various scenes, and forensic officers were able to identify a suspect.
Officers then executed a search warrant on a home in the 2300-block of McNeill Ave in Oak Bay and recovered over $3000 worth of items that had been stolen from the schools.
All of the items have since been returned to their owners.
22-year old Constantin Martin Arthur Mitchell has been charged with one count of B&E and two counts of possession of stolen property.
He has been released from custody on a number of conditions and is scheduled to be back in court Jan. 18.
