Tricycle Theft Triumph

Kawartha Lakes Police have one man in custody and are seeking a warrant for the arrest of a second after an adult tricycle was stolen from a Glenelg Street West address early Wednesday morning.

On September 6th, 2017 at approximately 1:54 am the two men removed the tricycle from the Glenelg Street West address.  Both males mounted the bicycle and rode south on Cambridge Street South until they were stopped by police at Melborne Street West, approximately one block away.  While speaking with police, one of the men dropped a silver and brown knife on the ground, which was found to be a switchblade style prohibited weapon.  The male in possession of the knife was arrested at the scene, while the second immediately fled on foot. The second male is known to Police, and a warrant is being sought for his arrest.

38-year-old Anthony John Quinn of Lindsay was detained in custody and appeared for a Bail Hearing at the Lindsay, Ontario Court of Justice late Thursday afternoon. He has been charged with Theft Under $5,000.00,  Possession of Property Obtained by Crime Under $5,000.00, Unauthorized Possession of a Weapon and three counts of Possession of a Weapon Contrary to Prohibition Order.
