A man in La Ronge is in custody after more than 20 cars and trucks were broken into in the northern community on Sunday.

RCMP were called to a locked compound used to store vehicles belonging to people flying to fishing camps in the north.

An officer arrived to find a man smashing windows and rummaging through the contents. The suspect had damaged 23 vehicles when he was arrested.

RCMP don't believe the man was acting alone and they're searching for another suspect.
