OPP in Orillia seize drugs, fake licence plates

OPP in Orillia have charged three people and seized two fake Ontario licence plates they say were constructed out of cardboard.

Cops were called to Monarch Drive business on Wednesday afternoon to investigate a possible theft in progress at business. Police were told three suspects were filling a shopping cart with electronic devices, and the trio had been observed by staff in the past using distraction techniques in order to complete the the thefts.

About the same time police arrived at the business, the suspects decided to leave the premises but leave the cart of items behind.

Officers spoke with the them and began an investigation.

Police located a vehicle connected to the suspects they say had licence plates that were constructed out of cardboard.

"The plate numbers adorning the cardboard, while not registered to the vehicle on scene, were a match for the same make, model and colour vehicle," OPP stated in a news release.

Police say they seized two fake Ontario licence plates as well as suspected meth and cocaine.

Charges have been laid against two people from Brampton and one from Barrie.
