(SOUTH HURON, ON) - A trio of copper wire thieves is facing criminal charges following arrests made this past weekend by Huron County Ontario Provincial Police (OPP).

At approximately 2:18 a.m. on Sunday, December 9, 2018 Huron County OPP officers were dispatched to attend a Hydro One substation located on Richmond Street south of Centralia after receiving an alarm notification.

Upon arrival officers found a suspect vehicle on scene, a hole cut into the compound fence and a pile of copper wire lying outside the compound. A quick thinking officer followed the fresh tracks in the snow and by doing so he was able to track down one of the suspects that had fled the scene. OPP West Region Emergency Response Team (ERT) & Canine also responded to the scene to assist with the search for additional suspects. As a result of a successful canine track, two additional male suspects were taken into custody by Huron OPP members.

Dan ARBO, 38 years of age from Bluewater; Brock WEISS, 39 years of age from Bluewater and 39-year-old Dennis ENGLAND from South Huron are all facing the following charges:
Break, Enter and Commit Indictable Offence
Mischief Under $5,000
Possession of Break-in Instruments

All three have been released from custody with a court appearance scheduled for January 24, 2019 at the Ontario Court of Justice - Exeter.
