A total of 86 charges have been laid in connection to a stolen property investigation.
Members of the Lambton OPP Street Crimes Unit arrested three people in Petrolia on October 25.
During its investigation, police recovered 19 trailers and a Utility Terrain Vehicle, valued at approximately $240,000.
The names and further details about the accused were not released “to protect the integrity of the investigation.”
The following charges were laid:

– Use, act or deal in forged document (14 counts)
– Make forged document (14 counts)

Last month, through a thorough investigation, members of #LambtonOPP Community Street Crime Unit (CSCU) were able to recover close to $240,000 worth of stolen property. Three individuals are now facing 86 charges as a result. Another great recovery from our many CSCU teams. ^jb pic.twitter.com/khIxtN6wiW
