Niagara Regional Police have arrested and charged three St. Catharines residents after the trio was connected to a car stolen earlier this month.

According to a press release, the incident unfolded on Tuesday (Jan. 25) when police were called to the parking lot of the Real Canadian Superstore on South Service Road in Grimsby to reports of two men acting suspiciously in the parking lot.


When officers arrived, the car in question, a 2009 black Honda Civic fled the area but due to safety concerns, police did not attempt to stop it.

A short time later, the car, which police had determined was stolen from a St. Catharines home on Jan. 13, was seen parked behind a snowbank in a different parking lot on South Service, near Kerman Avenue.

Officers reportedly approached the car and found a man and woman sitting in the passenger seats of the car and both were arrested.

“While three marked police cruisers were parked around the stolen vehicle conducting their investigation, a third person approached the vehicle,” police said in the press release.

“The man was immediately identified as being involved in the original suspicious activity complaint. He too was arrested.”

David Stewart (42 years) of St Catharines has been arrested and charged with the offence of:

  • Possession of Property Obtained by Crime Under $5000

Trevor McCord-Poole (33 years) of St Catharines has been arrested and charged with the offence of:

  • Possession of Property Obtained by Crime Under $5000

Danielle Walker (26 years) of St Catharines has been arrested and charged with the offence of:

  • Possession of Property Obtained by Crime Under $5000

According to police, Stewart and Walker were both released on scene with a Promise to Appear and a future court date.

McCord-Poole had an unrelated warrant for his arrest and was held in custody and attended a bail hearing on January 26, 2022, at the Robert S. K. Welch Courthouse in St Catharines.

Anyone who may have information about this investigation is asked to contact officers at 905-688-4111, opt. 3, 1025400.
