Reported stolen vehicle leads to possession, trafficking charges against 2 Ottawa men
Charges include possession over $5K, trafficking, carrying concealed weapon
Police in Thunder Bay, Ont., say two men from the nation's capital have been arrested and charged after officers recovered a stolen vehicle, jewelry, drugs and cash.
According to a written release, police found a black pickup truck around 2 p.m. on Tuesday at an Egan Place address that officers were told was reported stolen from a local rental car company.
When police searched the two men, officers found a number of pieces of jewelry with tags still attached, along with large amounts of cash, marijuana, pills and a knife, police said. The vehicle was subsequently towed for further investigation.
A 22-year-old Ottawa man faces charges of possession of property obtained by crime over and under $5,000, while a 20-year-old man, also from Ottawa, faces the same charges, plus additional ones for carrying a concealed weapon and trafficking.
