(ERIN TWP, ON) County of Wellington OPP officers have arrested and charged a 41 year old male for property and probation related offences. On October 23, 2012 a theft of horse tack equipment was reported to Peel Regional Police Service. On October 25, 2012 a female party from the village of Ballinafad contacted OPP to report she had purchased horse tack equipment she believed was stolen.

She became suspicious as the agreed purchase price was considerably lower than the value of the items. Arrangements were made for the male to re-attend the following day to pick up the remainder of the agreed upon cash.

On October 26, 2012, OPP officers were on scene when the male returned and placed him into custody. As a result, Octavio DE OLIVEIRA, age 41 of Brampton has been charged with possession of stolen property and breach of probation, contrary to the Criminal Code of Canada. He was remanded into custody for a bail hearing on October 29, 2012.
