Three men facing charges after Halton police track down van stolen from Hamilton
BURLINGTON — A cruiser equipped with an automated licence plate recognition system has helped a Halton police officer track down a van that was stolen from Hamilton last month.
The uniformed officer was driving on Dundas Street in Burlington Wednesday night when the system flagged a stolen van driving east near Tim Dobbie Drive.
The officer followed the 2008 Toyota Sienna van and pulled it over on Millcroft Park Drive. The van had been reported stolen in Hamilton on June 25.
The men in the van were arrested, Halton police said. A small amount of the opioid hydromorphone was allegedly found inside.
Kevin Michael Myles, 36, and Christopher Ross, 37, both of no fixed address, and Damien Michael Nelson, 38, of Hamilton were charged with possession of property obtained by crime over $5,000.
Nelson is also charged with possession of a controlled substance and two counts a failing to comply with probation.
