A Dartmouth man has been charged after Halifax District RCMP allege they caught him returning to his home with thousands of dollars worth of stolen jewelry.

Officers were called to a Cole Harbour home at around 7:30 p.m. Thursday after a security alarm went off.

They found the Taranaki Drive residence had been broken into and several items of jewelry were missing.

Investigators identified a potential suspect and quickly took him into custody.

"The suspect was found to be in possession of the stolen jewelry from Taranaki Drive valued at approximately $15,000," Mounties said in a news release.

Lewis Perry Cain, 64, is scheduled to appear in Dartmouth Provincial Court Friday, charged with break and enter and commit, possession of property obtained by crime over $5,000 and three counts of failing to comply with recognizance.
