Stolen ve­hi­cle found

The Expositor (Brantford) - - NEWS -

Nor­folk OPP this week were us­ing an au­to­matic li­cence plate recog­ni­tion ve­hi­cle, which alerted of­fi­cers to a stolen ve­hi­cle on High­way 24 near Water­ford. The ve­hi­cle had been re­ported stolen from Dry­den, Ont. A man and a woman, both 24, were ar­rested. Each is charged with pos­ses­sion of prop­erty ob­tained by crime over $5,000, pos­ses­sion prop­erty ob­tained by crime un­der $5,000 and theft un­der $5,000. The man is also charged with pos­ses­sion of break-in in­stru­ments, driv­ing while un­der sus­pen­sion, two counts of fail­ing to com­ply with a pro­ba­tion order and fail­ing to com­ply with re­cog­ni­zance. The woman is also charged with fail­ing to com­ply with an un­der­tak­ing. “Our ALPR ve­hi­cle is def­i­nitely mak­ing it more dif­fi­cult for sus­pended driv­ers, driv­ers of stolen ve­hi­cles and other ve­hi­cles with plates in poor stand­ing to drive un­de­tected on Nor­folk County road­ways,” Insp. Joseph Varga, Nor­folk OPP de­tach­ment com­man­der, said in a me­dia re­lease. “This tech­nol­ogy is a great as­set, which means that the OPP will be able to de­tect thou­sands more li­cence plates in poor stand­ing ev­ery day over a broader ge­o­graphic range in On­tario.”
