After sharing a photo of the suspect on social media earlier this week, an officer observed the man near a Princess Street coffee shop on Thursday, adding that he attempted to run away from the officer and tried to resist arrest.

The 47-year old was carrying a backpack containing bolt-cutters, a screwdriver and a flashlight.

He is charged with break and enter, possession of break-in tools and two counts of breach of probation.
