Police have charged a man following the investigation into two break and enters where a van was used to gain entry to separate businesses on the Sunshine Coast today (August 5).

It will be alleged at 3.20am, a white Toyota HiAce was reversed into the glass doors of a photographic and electrical store on Plaza Parade in Maroochydore.

The sole occupant then entered the store and smashed multiple glass cabinets, before stealing cameras and equipment.

It will be further alleged around an hour later the same van was used to smash the glass doors of a Caloundra Road machinery business in Caloundra West.

Around 3.30pm detectives attended an Echidna Court address in Landsborough where a man fled from the house.

He was located a short time later hiding in a creek by a police dog.

A 23-year-old Landsborough man has been charged with two counts each of break and enter and one count each of possession of tainted property (registration plates), possession of a dangerous drug (cannabis) and drive unaccompanied on a learner's licence.

He will appear in the Maroochydore Magistrates Court tomorrow.
