  • Fail to comply with a probation order

Chantelle HORSLEY, age 28 of Perth, has been charged with theft under $5000.

Both of the accused were released from custody and are scheduled to appear before the Ontario Court of Justice in Perth on June 3, 2024.

The earlier thefts of gas remain under investigation. It’s not yet known if this incident is connected to the previous thefts.
