A man who worked as a computer specialist for the Newfoundland and Labrador Teachers’ Association (NLTA) is facing more criminal charges.

Michael Tracey appeared in provincial court Tuesday.

He was taken back to jail until his next court date on Monday.

The 36-year-old was charged with break and enter and two counts each of trespassing at night and breaching court orders.

He was arrested about 3 a.m. Tuesday in the area of Stamps Lane and Freshwater Road.

The RNC’s street patrol officers were assisted by the K-9 and RNC forensics units.

Tracey also has outstanding charges, including impaired driving and malicious damage under $5,000.

However, according to CBC reports, a warrant has been issued in Calgary for Tracey on charges of fraud and identity theft.

Meanwhile, the NLTA said Tracey no longer has access to the association’s computer system.
