Police have arrested a suspect in connection with 144 thefts at various LCBOs.
The investigation began when police noticed an increase in LCBO thefts within the Nottawasaga and Dufferin areas of southern Ontario.
In a press release, OPP say that they’ve investigated the thefts alongside the Liquor Control Board of Ontario Resource Protection Unit and the amount stolen is valued at more than $70,000.
