OS-Policesept-regOn Saturday, October 11th, 2014, the owner of a west side store unknowingly dropped their deposit bag while walking out into the parking lot. The bag contained over three thousand dollars in currency. The loss was discovered at a later time and the merchant contacted the Owen Sound Police to investigate. A review of the video security system revealed that a customer had pulled into the lot and saw the deposit bag. The man collected the bag, placed it in his own vehicle and left. After an analysis of the video a suspect was identified by the Community Oriented Response Unit (CORE) and the man was arrested by uniform members on the night of October 15th. The man was investigated by the Criminal Investigation Branch and subsequently charged with Theft under $5000 and Possession of property obtained by crime under $5000. The 40 year old Owen Sound man was released to attend court on November 13th. Two thirds of the money from the deposit bag was recovered to be returned to the business owner. Unfortunately, approximately a thousand dollars had already been used by the accused.
