On the 19th of August 2021 at 7:15 am, Aylmer officers on patrol spotted a suspicious vehicle parked in a lot on Talbot St W. Attached to the vehicle was a dealer plate that had been previously stolen from a car dealership in St. Thomas. A 41 yr old male from Bayham was found inside the vehicle sleeping. Police checks determined that a warrant for arrest existed for this male and he was taken into custody. Further investigation resulted in recovery of several stolen power tools and equipment, which are linked to break and enters that had occurred in St. Thomas.
The male was held for a bail hearing and was remanded into custody at the Elgin Middlesex Detention Centre
