Suspect Charged After Selling Stolen Items from Oakville on Kijiji
A Caledon man is facing charges after power tools were allegedly stolen from an Oakville business then sold online.
Several suspects forced open a work trailer on March 31, say Halton police, jacking more than $5,000 worth of items.
The suspects were caught on video fleeing from the scene near Bristol Circle and Coventry Rd. in a white pick-up truck.
But the tools were then posted for sale on Kijiji and someone tipped off police, who set up a meeting with one of the suspects.
Joel Mongrain, 36, was arrested.
He’s charged with possession of property obtained by crime over $5,000 and breach of probation.
Mongrain was held for bail.
