Calgary police have charged a man in connection to a string of break-and-enters and they would like to reunite the stolen property with the rightful owners.

Earlier this year, Calgary police investigated a series of residential break-and-enters that happened throughout the city during the Spring, and as a result, one man was charged in relation to the incidents in May.

Between April 6 and May 3, police say several homes were targeted and various pieces of jewelry were stolen.
