What a recovery by South Simcoe Police.

Officers attended an Innisfil automotive business on May 5 to deal with a dispute about a vehicle. Police learned a Midland man found his vehicle that had been previously reported stolen at the business. A 25-year-old Innisfil man was arrested at the scene and charged with possession of stolen property, altering vehicle identification numbers and mischief.

A search warrant for the property was executed and police say they located an additional 21 vehicles totalling $400,000 that were allegedly stolen in Ontario, Quebec and New Brunswick.
