An investigation into a string of stolen RAM pickup trucks near Caledon has led to charges for a pair from Montreal who were arrested in Brampton last week.
Between Aug. 3 and Aug. 15, the Caledon OPP say thieves stole eight RAM pickup trucks from the Bolton area. All of the trucks were taken from residential driveways between the hours of approximately 2:00 a.m. and 4:00 a.m., according to police.
After investigating what are believed to have been a series of “relay thefts,” police say they located suspects in the Toronto area and the Caledon Community Street Crime Unit arrested two suspects in Brampton on Thursday (Aug. 18).
Yassine Dendane, 19, of Montreal has been charged with possession of property obtained by crime and failing to comply with a probation order.
Mohamed Zahed, 19, of Montreal was also charged with possession of cocaine.
Dendane is scheduled to appear in the Ontario Court of Justice in Orangeville on Nov. 3, while Zahed is scheduled to attend the Ontario Court of Justice in Brampton on Oct. 3.
None of the allegations have been proven in court.
Police say the stolen trucks are still outstanding and anyone with information relating to the investigation to contact the Caledon OPP by calling 905-584-2241.
