Police have charged a teen after a theft from a Pembroke home.

Upper Ottawa Valley OPP says that the teen had broken into a residence on Church Street on February 14th and fled from the scene after stealing a video game console from the home.

Police say they located and arrested the man later in the afternoon and recovered the stolen console. As a result, a 17-year-old Laurentian Valley man was charged with break and enter as well as theft under $5000.

He’s set to appear in a youth justice court in late March.
