Tools stolen, then recovered

About $3,000 worth of tools were lost and then recovered yesterday.

Yesterday morning Kawartha Lakes Police were contacted about the theft of the tools from a van that had been parked overnight on Duke Street in Lindsay.

As the day progressed the owner of the tools continued to seek out information regarding who was responsible for stealing them, knowing that they would be readily identifiable by markings they had made on them. Yesterday evening the owner contacted police with information about the location of the missing tools.

The owner reported they had attended at a Huron Street residence after receiving information that someone there was selling tools that matched the description of his own missing tools. Once the owner investigated at the Huron Street residence, it was clear to them that the tools were theirs and they contacted police.

Kawartha Lakes Police charged 51-year-old James Clayton with possession of stolen property under $5000.00. Clayton will appear in the Lindsay Court of Justice on Nov. 23.
