A man is facing charges after some alleged thefts from vehicles in Dartmouth.

Police were called to Saint Clair Avenue just after 4:30 a.m. yesterday for a report of a man breaking into cars.

The suspect fled the area after realizing he'd been spotted, but a K-9 unit was called in and he was found on the grounds of a nearby school and arrested around 5:30 a.m.

Police say they determined two vehicles were entered and the garage door of a home had been opened.

A 37-year-old man faces several charges including break and enter, theft and possession under $5000.

He was remanded into custody following a bail hearing.

Large ice mass could trigger more flooding in New Brunswick: EMO

Emergency officials in New Brunswick say a large mass of ice making its way down the St. John River could cause water levels in the Perth-Andover area to rise as high as they did in 2012, when hundreds of people were evacuated from their homes.

A 35 kilometre long mass of ice is making its way downriver and River Watch says water could begin to back up into the communities of Perth-Andover and Tobique First Nation if the ice mass ice becomes stopped at a jam below Perth-Andover in Muniac.

The New Brunswick Emergency Measures Organization is strongly advising people to follow a voluntary evacuation order recommended by the Village of Perth-Andover.

Three more bodies have been pulled from a sunken ferry off South Korea.

South Korean coast guard officials say Saturday's recovery increases the death toll to 32.

Roughly 270 people remain unaccounted for.

Officials say strong currents and rain have made it difficult to get inside the ferry, where most of the passengers are believed to have been trapped.

The ferry's captain Lee Joon-seok, 68, has been arrested on suspicion of negligence and abandoning people in need.
