Two Mississauga residents are among three people facing theft charges after police responding to a shoplifting call southwest of Ottawa on Monday afternoon recovered $15,000 in stolen goods.

Lanark County OPP said in a news release on Wednesday that the stolen items were recovered shortly after officers answered a call for shoplifting at about 3:30 p.m. at a commercial property on McNeely Avenue in Carleton Place, some 45 kilometres southwest of the nation’s capital.

Police say the officers were called to the scene to help the store’s loss prevention officer with the arrest of multiple theft suspects.

“Further investigation into this occurrence led to the recovery of over $15,000 worth of stolen property, which also appears to be the result of retail theft,” OPP said in the news release.

Kacper Ciuron, 24, of Scarborough, and Bartlomiej Becmer, 37, and Grecian Goman, 31, both of Mississauga, are charged with one count each of theft under $5,000 and possession of property obtained by crime over $5,000.

All three are scheduled to appear in Perth court on Jan. 8.
