DIDSBURY – A 39-year-old man is facing 33 charges related to more than a dozen recent break-ins of Didsbury businesses over the past two and a half months.

Eric Laurel Flinton, a Didsbury resident, was arrested on March 3 following an extensive police investigation, said Didsbury RCMP detachment commander Staff Sgt. Chad Fournier in a release issued Friday.

The break-ins of 13 businesses date back to Jan. 18, 2020, he said.

As well as break-and-enter charges, Flinton is also charged with theft of two cash donation boxes, possession of break-in instruments and failing to comply with bail conditions.

Police have not said what items, if any, were taken during the break-ins.

Following a judicial hearing, Flinton has been remanded into custody and is scheduled to appear in Airdrie provincial court on March 12, he said.
