One of the victims later received cell phone alerts of his stolen bank card being used at various locations in Owen Sound.  The victim notified police, who obtained security footage and arrested a female suspect on Thursday.

A 22-year-old Owen Sound woman is now charged with possession of stolen property and two counts of unauthorized use of a credit card.  She is scheduled to appear in court on September 21.

Another suspect was later identified and a 26-year-old London man was arrested. He is charged with theft under $5,000, theft of a credit card, four counts of possession of stolen property, failing to comply with probation and failing to comply with recognizance of bail. He has been remanded in custody and will appear in court on Friday.

Police were able to recover the stolen GPS and the majority of stolen identification.
