A Hanover woman is facing more than a dozen charges after being found in possession of numerous stolen cheque books and government ID’s.

Back in November, West Grey police arrested a 29-year-old woman for an unrelated manner, and while conducting a search, the stolen property was located.

After a subsequent investigation, police re-arrested the Hanover woman this week.

She’s been charged with 13 counts of Possession of¬†Property Obtained by Crime, and six counts of Being in Possession of an Identity Document without lawful excuse.

She’s been released with a court date of January 15th in Walkerton.

Police say 14 pieces of government IDs and six cheque books had been stolen over the past few months from vehicles in Hanover, West Grey, and other parts of central and southwestern Ontario.
