Charges laid in Caledon stolen car stash house search: police

Published January 3, 2023 at 8:45 am

A Caledon woman is facing charges after a months-long investigation into stolen cars and credit cards.

Back in November, the Caledon OPP say officers began investigating possible stolen vehicles being stashed at a residence in Caledon.

Police also received reports of several vehicle break-ins in Caledon, and say suspects made purchases with credit cards stolen from motor vehicles.

Members of the Caledon Community Street Crime Unit (CSCU) determined the suspect vehicle used in the credit card incidents matched one that had been seen at the alleged stolen vehicle stash house in Caledon.

Police searched a residence and recovered items that were taken during thefts from vehicles, a replica firearm, and a stolen vehicle.

Rachel McCarnty, 34-years-old, of Caledon has been charged with:

  • Two counts of Fail to comply with Release Order
  • Possession of Property Obtained by Crime Over $5000
  • Four count of Possession of Property Obtained by Crime Under $5000
  • Possession of Stolen Identity Document
  • Possession of Stolen Credit Card
  • Possession of Break-In Instruments
  • Drive Under Suspension
  • Deface License Plate
  • Use Plate Not Authorized for Vehicle

None of the allegations have been proven in court.

Police are reminding residents not to leave wallets, credit cards, identification or banking information in an unattended vehicle.
