Members of the Caledon Detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) have recovered a stolen vehicle and charged four individuals.
On April 12, 2023, shortly after 7:00 p.m., the Caledon and Dufferin Community Street Crime units were in the area of Mayfield Road and Creditview Road in the Town of Caledon. While the officers were engaged in a separate investigation, they observed unusual activity by four individuals entering a local business. Information revealed that the motor vehicle they were operating was reported stolen outside of Caledon the month prior. The four suspects were then placed under arrest.
As a result of the investigation a 15-year-old, two 16-year-olds and an 18-year-old of Brampton were charged with:
• Possession of property obtained by crime over $5000
All accused are scheduled to appear at the Ontario Court of Justice in Orangeville at a later date to answer to the charges.
A replica firearm was found inside the vehicle. A general provision of the Youth Criminal Justice Act (Y.C.J.A) prohibits the release of the name of a Young Person and therefore, the identity of the three young persons involved in this investigation will be withheld.
