On September 12, 2019, at approximately 3:11 PM, police were dispatched to a north end business after loss prevention officers observed a male leave the store with a quantity of items without making any attempt to pay.
The male suspect then fled the scene in a vehicle being driven by another male who had been waiting in the parking lot. Enroute to the scene, officers located the vehicle containing the stolen products and subsequently arrested both the driver and passenger.
35 year old John HAWARD, of Ennismore, was charged with theft under $5000, contrary to section 334(b) of the criminal code and possession of property obtained by crime under $5000 contrary to section 355(b) of the criminal code.
35 year old Jason COGAR, of Fenelon Falls, was charged with possession of property obtained by crime under $5000 contrary to section 355(b) of the criminal code.
Both are scheduled to appear before the Ontario Court of Justice in October.
