Police Arrest Two Men Reportedly Looking into Vehicles in Milton

Two arrests have been made following an overnight incident in Milton.

Just after 2:30 am, police were called to the area of Bell Street and Vanier Drive for reports of two males looking into vehicles.

The suspects fled the scene on foot, causing a brief chase, and one suspect was quickly apprehended.

“With the assistance of the Canine Unit, the second suspect was located and arrested in a wooded area shortly thereafter,” police say.

The investigation determined that the suspects had reportedly arrived in the area in a stolen vehicle, which has since been recovered by police.

Hamilton men Mathew Oliveira and Matthew Chupil (both 19) are charged with possession of property obtained by crime over $5000, possession of property obtained by crime under $5000, eight counts of possessing/using a stolen credit card, and eight counts of fraud under $5000.
