OPP issue warning about online selling after $400,000 recovery of stolen goods

Police say the seller of a car agreed to swap the vehicle for items offered by an interested person

Provincial police are once again warning the public to be careful when buying and selling products online.

The alert comes after a Wasaga Beach area resident put their car for sale online and received an inquiry from a person.

The two parties agreed to sell the car for three trailers. The swap took place last month, then the seller got suspicious and contacted the police.

Investigators allege the trailers and their contents were stolen from Halton Region and the Toronto area.

A 37-year-old man from Dundas has been charged with:

Fraud Over $5000

·        Fraud Under $5000

·        Possession of Property Obtained by Crime X 5

·        Drive Prohibited

Police recovered three trailers, a dirt bike, two cars and an underground curing system.
