A police investigation into vehicle thefts has led to the arrest of one person.
On Friday, February 22, Halton police responded to a report of a stolen vehicle at a residence on Sheddon Avenue in Oakville.
“Several days later, a member of the public noticed an abandoned vehicle in the same area,” police say. “Officers responded again and located a vehicle stolen from the City of Brampton.”
The Forensic Identification Bureau examined the second vehicle and seized DNA evidence, which the Center of Forensic Science confirmed belonged to Alex Payne, a 26 year old Toronto man.
