Five break-ins in Matheson have been traced back to a 17-year-old. South Porcupine OPP arrested the Ramore teen this week. Over $30,000 worth of jewellery and other items were stolen from the homes in late August.

The teen is looking at five charges, including three counts of break-and-enter committing an indictable offence. He has a court date in Timmins at the end of the month.
