The 19-year-old Bowraville man is due to appear in court today after a lengthy police investigation into a number of break and enters on the Coffs Coast this year. 

The arrest comes as a breakthrough for a police investigation into a spate of break and enter offences committed in Nambucca Heads, Bowraville and Toormina since January.
