Police in Lower Sackville are investigating after a woman says she woke up on Saturday morning to find a man rummaging through her things before bolting.

Nova Scotia RCMP said they were called to an apartment on Paige Plaza around 7 a.m.

Then, officers said they received calls about motor-vehicle thefts from others in the neighbourhood.

They arrested a 39-year-old man from Lower Sackville.

He's set to appear in Dartmouth court on Monday for breaching a recognizance.

Investigators are still looking into the break and enter and robberies.
