North Bay Police Service is reporting that in the last two days they have arrested and charged two people with vehicle thefts.

The first came at just before 5:00 am Monday morning when police attended the scene of a vehicle that had been damaged and abandoned. The vehicle had been reported stolen. Police say they searched the area surrounding the vehicle and found a man lying on the side of the road near the 3000 block of Highway 63. Police report the man was heavily intoxicated and had a bottle of liquor next to him.

A 43-year-old North Bay man has been charged with:

  • Driving with more than 80 mg of alcohol in blood
  • Care or control while impaired
  • Theft of motor vehicle

Police did not have to search for their second vehicle thief, they say she was sitting in the driver’s seat. A report of a suspicious female in a Fisher Street parking lot had been reported in the early hours of September 26. The plates came back as matching those of a stolen vehicle from Trois Rivieres, Que.
