Cape Breton Post - - CAPE BRETON -

SYD­NEY — A Glace Bay man ap­peared in court Mon­day fac­ing 16 charges aris­ing from what po­lice say were break and en­ters into Church’s Su­per­mar­ket in Mar­ion Bridge, a post of­fice lo­cated next door and Lau­ren­tian En­ergy in the Sy­d­port In­dus­trial Park.

Christo­pher David MacKay, 20, was re­manded into cus­tody for a March 16 re­turn to pro­vin­cial court in Syd­ney on mul­ti­ple charges of break and en­ter, theft over $5,000, theft un­der $5,000, pos­ses­sion of prop­erty ob­tained by crime, breach of pro­ba­tion and fail­ing to com­ply with court or­ders.

Staff Sgt. Mike Kennedy said po­lice arriving in Mar­ion Bridge at 4:30 a.m., Mon­day found the su­per­mar­ket, which in­cludes a liquor store, and the post of­fice had been bro­ken into and shortly there­after, ar­rested a man found in a truck that had struck a nearby house.

Kennedy said booze that was stolen from the liquor store was re­cov­ered in the truck. The truck was stolen from Sy­d­port, po­lice said.

Po­lice called out the K-9 unit to as­sist in the search for a sec­ond sus­pect who fled into the woods and were still ac­tively search­ing for that sus­pect as of Mon­day af­ter­noon.
