Guelph police say they’ve arrested all members of a theft ring focused on valuable electronic devices.
According to police, the investigation began in February when shopping carts full of tablets were stolen from a department store. The tablets are believed to have a total value of more than $20,000.
Police say they eventually identified and tracked down five suspects, with the last arrest taking place on Saturday.
Facing charges are five Guelph residents – a 47-year-old man, a 45-year-old man, two 40-year-old men and a 26-year-old woman.
