Handily for police investigating the crime, while there the man appeared to have photocopied his own face and left the printout at the property.

Now police have charged a man, Gary Samuel Lambe of Toronto, after he was arrested on an unrelated matter.

Lambe, 54, who has been charged with breaking and entering and failing to comply with probation, was “identified due to tips and information provided by members of the community”, police said.
