Man previously known to police charged for Hampton break-in

A Saint John-area man appeared before a judge on Thursday to face charges connected to an alleged break and enter in Hampton, N.B.

Tyler Gerald Brown, 27, of Charlotte County, was charged with break, enter and theft, possession of stolen property and fraudulently using a credit card.

It follows an incident on Oct. 16, in Hampton.

The RCMP said it was called to a break-in at a business on Main Street.

“Police later determined that a credit card that had been stolen during the break and enter had been used at a separate business on Main Street,” Mounties said.

Police said they identified a suspect the same day and arrested Brown, who was found to be in possession of the stolen items.

Brown is known to police, as St. Stephen RCMP had issued an arrest warrant in August for being unlawfully at large from a Saint John correctional centre.

Following his appearance in court, the RCMP said he was remanded into custody and is scheduled to return to court on Oct. 25.
