Simon Brand, 56, of Brampton and Jason Dahonick, 39, of Caledon have both been charged with seven counts of Theft Under $5000.

Both Brand and Dahonick scheduled to appear in Orangeville Provincial Court in March.

Police are asking anyone with information or video surveillance footage related to the thefts to contact Caledon OPP Detachment at (905) 584-2241 or 1-888-310-1122.
