A 25-year-old man faces charges in connection with a Nanaimo, B.C., marina crime spree that prompted some owners to sleep on their boats to ward off thefts.

The suspect faces two counts each of break-and-enter and possession of stolen property under $5,000.

Police say more charges could be forthcoming because they believe he is responsible for a rash of 19 thefts from boats and marinas that began Dec. 1.
