Saint John Police had to chase a suspected thief not once, but twice on Wednesday.

A 29 year old man was wanted for allegedly stealing from five different businesses and when police went to his suspected location, they saw a man jump from the second floor window.

The chase was then on, but he managed to get away.

Then about 15 minutes later he was spotted again and officers ran through backyards, jumped fences and eventually grabbed him in a park.

He was remanded to custody and will face a number of theft charges as well as breaching a Judge's orders.
