Man on mini crime spree arrested in stolen van

A Woodville-area man has been arrested twice in less than 48 hours after being involved in several criminal acts over the past week.

The spree began last Monday when a man entered a Lindsay Street South coffee shop and was observed taking several items from a display before leaving the store.

Video surveillance at the store captured the man getting into a grey Nissan van that had a stolen licence plate attached to it. The licence plate had been stolen from another Lindsay business.

Last Friday, Kawartha Lakes Police were contacted by an Albert Street South business who reported that a grey 2005 Nissan Quest van was missing from the property. It is believed that the van had been taken from the property sometime earlier but that the owner did notice it gone.

The next day police located the stolen van and the man at a Mary Street West address, after the owner of the van noticed someone operating it in the area. At that time the man was arrested and charged and was released from custody.

Yesterday Kawartha Lakes Police were called to a Kent Street West business after store security employees chased a man who had stolen clothing from the store. The man was apprehended and turned over to police. He was detained in custody on all outstanding charges.

40-year-old Daniel Jamieson of Woodville will appear in the Lindsay, Ontario Court of Justice for a bail hearing on Nov. 28. He has been charged with two counts of theft under $5000, three counts of possession of property obtained by crime under $5000 and failing to comply with a peace bond.
