The property-crime task force that was established in January made four arrests on Tuesday in two separate investigations.
Officers spotted a wanted man on a bike in the area of Conroy Crescent and College Avenue at around 8:30 a.m.
Police said the 26-year-old was arrested on charges related to a theft at the University of Guelph on Monday, a pair of car thefts on March 28 and a break-in on Aug. 7, 2018.
Meanwhile, another investigation by the BEAT team led to the arrest of a man on Carden Street on Tuesday.
Police said the 35-year-old had 14 grams of crystal meth on him, along with break-in tools and stolen IDs.
During a search of the man’s apartment on Conroy Crescent, police say they found stolen items including an E-bike and more IDs.
Police said a small amount of drugs were found as well, and two women inside the apartment were also arrested.
The BEAT team was established to combat a rise in property crime in the city.
The pilot program is made up of five officers who have been pulled from different units and dedicated to issues such as break-ins and vehicle thefts.
