Halton police believe they have cracked the case and a suspect is facing charges for allegedly stealing eggs and cash from a farm in Halton Hills.
The first theft took place at a rural farm on Jan. 16 at 5 p.m.
The homeowner stores a fridge at the side of the residence where eggs are sold to the general public.
An honour system is used in which a jar of money is kept in the fridge for customers to pay.
