A man charged with eight offences related to break-ins at several local businesses last month has been sentenced less than two weeks after his arrest.

Philip Thompson Cooper, 47, was ordered to spend four months in jail followed by one year of probation with conditions in Terrace provincial court April 2.

He was also ordered to provide a DNA sample to police and pay a $100 victim fine surcharge.

On March 25, police reported that Cooper was in RCMP custody and was facing eight charges, including breach of probation, theft and possession of break-in instruments, in relation to a rash of break and enters into city businesses over two weeks.

He was well-known to police, of no fixed address and was arrested on March 22, said police,.

"It was a combination of good police work and great support from the community that led to this arrest," said Terrace RCMP inspector Dana Hart at that time.
