A 30-year-old man from Bishopsbourne has been charged with six counts of burglary and five counts of stealing in relation to a Saturday morning crime spree on Tasmania's East Coast.
A range of businesses including auto electricians, mechanics and petrol stations were targeted in the crime spree.
Break O'Day mayor Mick Tucker said the community was shocked.
"Everybody is devastated to think that you can lock up and go home and someone can come in and invade your personal space" said Cr Tucker.
"We always believe it happens elsewhere, not in your own backyard".
That thirty year old male is also a person of interest identified in a series of burglaries in the North-East that included thefts at a school, church and retail premises.
A gold coloured 2005 Holden Rodeo was stolen during the East Coast crime spree and is yet to be recovered.
