Police have charged a man they say pulled a Spiderman act to rob upscale Toronto homes over the last few years.

Police allege the culprit climbed walls and dropped in through skylights or second-storey windows to get around alarm systems. He also used high tech gadgets like flexible spy cams, listening devices and precious-metal testers.

Hundreds of items were swiped in robberies between October 2010 and this January-designer watches, silver bars, coins, Tiffany jewellery and iPhones. Altogether, police say the stolen goods are worth millions of dollars.

The items have been catalogued in over 800 photos as police try to get them back to their rightful owners. You can see the photos here.

Shane Gagnon (aka Shane Louis Zwezdararyk of Bradford faces 31 charges of break and enter. More charges could be laid.
