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.
