2 charged after southwestern Ontario crime spree probe nets $70K in stolen goods: OPP – London

A two-month long police investigation into a slew of recent property crimes and vehicle thefts across southwestern Ontario has led to a laundry list of criminal charges being laid against a 30-year-old Thames Centre, Ont., man and 24-year-old London, Ont., woman.

OPP detachments in Elgin, Middlesex, and Oxford counties say they have been investigating a rash of vehicle thefts and pursuits, stolen credit cards, and property thefts that have occurred since November 2020.

Details remain limited, but investigators say the probe into the crime spree led OPP officers to a hotel in London where two people were taken into custody with the help of city police on Jan. 8.

Police say they seized some $70,000 worth of stolen goods as part of the investigation, including two stolen vehicles, 10 garage door openers, tools, and wallets. Officers say dozens of stolen IDs and other items were also seized.
