A Calgary man wanted on more than 100 warrants has been arrested and charged with crimes dating back three years.

Six days after he was released from jail, Justin Taylor Hartland, 38, was suspected in a downtown break-and-enter.

At the time, Hartland was also wanted on more than 100 outstanding warrants.

CPS tracks property-crime trends

On May 22, Hartland was arrested and charged with the break and enter.

Police also added more than 100 other charges related to fraud, property offences and breaches of court-imposed conditions.

"Property crime offences are not victimless crimes; they affect our citizens' sense of safety in our communities," Staff Sgt. Kurt Jacobs said in a release.

"Our analysts work hard to identify property-crime trends and associated suspects that can then be located and charged."

The Calgary Police Service says its offender management unit works closely with parole officers to identify the city's most prolific offenders who can then be monitored to ensure they're obeying their court-ordered release conditions.
