A Guelph woman is facing several charges after police recovered a large amount of stolen property from two storage units and her vehicle.

In late March, a search warrant was done at a storage unit in the city’s south end.

Police found power tools, which had been reported stolen three weeks before during a break-in at a home under renovation.

In the evening of March 27, an attempted break-in was reported at a property on Stone Road East.

A woman allegedly drove a male to that location for the break-in.

She was arrested around noon Wednesday while sitting in the driver’s seat of a pickup at an address on York Road.

A search of the pickup found a large amount of suspected stolen property including bicycles, tools, electronics and identity documents.

Police also seized around $1,000 worth of crystal methamphetamine, a digital scale and $3,500 in cash.

Later that day, police searched a storage unit in Fergus and recovered bicycles, sports equipment, tools, electronics and copper wire.

A 26-year-old Guelph woman is facing several charges including break and enter, possessing stolen property over $5,000 and possessing controlled substances for the purpose of trafficking.

She is being held for a bail hearing Thursday. Top Stories
