A 23-year-old Guelph woman has been charged after police say she brought several bags of stolen property with her to the courthouse on Tuesday.

Police say a woman was seen "carrying several bags of property and acting suspiciously."

Police spoke with her about her behaviour and the property. Police say the bags contained identity documents, tools used for break and enters and stolen property.

"It is alleged that items in the bags the Guelph woman was carrying were linked to six different thefts from vehicle incidents that had been reported in the last two weeks. Some of the property was returned to the rightful owner," police said in a release Thursday.

The woman has been charged with possessing identity documents, possession of break and enter instruments, possession of stolen property, breaching an undertaking and two counts of breaching an order of recognizance.
