A Haverhill man faces 65 charges after allegedly breaking into nearly three dozen cars in Tewksbury over several weeks, officials said.

Keegan MaCrae, 23, was arrested by Tewksbury police Monday after they said he was identified as the suspect of 35 car break-ins within 3 miles of each other, police said in a statement.

Police said the break-ins occurred on Summer, Kent, Marie, Pleasant, Dewey, and Helvetia streets, Heritage and Debra drives, and Pillsbury Avenue.
