A former IT administrator with the Newfoundland and Labrador Teachers' Association pleaded not guilty to 27 charges in St. John's provincial court on Friday.

Michael Tracey is accused of a half dozen break-ins at homes in the St. John's area.

He is also charged with one count of theft under $5,000 from his former employer, the NLTA.

A CBC News investigation found that Tracey was wanted in Alberta on charges of fraud, forgery and identity theft while he was working for the union in this province.

Tracey's trial on the charges he's facing in Newfoundland and Labrador is slated for November.
