A male wanted for stealing packages from the lobby of a downtown apartment was arrested Wednesday after turning himself in.

On March 30, the male entered an apartment building on Cardigan Street by waiting for a resident to leave and then going inside. He waited in the lobby a few minutes before picking up two parcels which had been dropped off and leaving the area with them. The male was identified by surveillance video.

A 28-year-old Guelph male is charged with theft under $5,000, possessing stolen property under $5,000 and two counts of breaching probation. He will appear in a Guelph court July 23.
