A 24-year-old man has received 45 days in custody and one year of probation after being found guilty of multiple offences, Oceanside RCMP said.

Silas Jacob Janzen, of no fixed address, was arrested last month after RCMP received reports of offences ranging from property destruction to petty thefts over a period of several months.

Police said they were able to link Janzen to over a dozen crimes based on statements and video surveillance. 

Janzen was released, but reoffended within hours and was rearrested, RCMP said. 

“We would like to extend our thanks to all the people who took the time to call the Oceanside RCMP to report these offences and provide quality accounts of what had transpired. Working together we can hold people accountable for their actions,” said Cpl. Jesse Foreman.
