Video – Cobourg Police – $50,000 Worth of Stolen Shopping Carts Recovered – 53 Carts Recovered at Encampment

In Police Blotter

Since May 1, 2024, the 2024 Downtown Action Plan comprises a series of proactive crime prevention measures alongside ongoing harm reduction programs. Enforcement of laws and regulations will be a critical focus, particularly in interactions requiring direct intervention due to specific actions or behaviours of individuals.

As part of ongoing proactive engagement and enforcement efforts during the week of May 13th culminating on May 18th members of Cobourg Police Service focused on the retrieval of stolen shopping carts. Over the course of the week, 83 shopping carts were recovered. 53 carts were recovered within the encampment. All shopping carts were returned to the rightful store. The value of these shopping carts is between $600.00 to $2000.00 each. A conservative estimate is that approximately $50,000.00 in stolen property was recovered.

During this initiative there were no charges laid for theft of possession of stolen property. Moving forward charges may be laid in these instances.
