Theft of cannabis plant leads to charges

Two people have been charged for allegedly stealing a cannabis plant from the backyard of a home in Lindsay last month.

According to the Kawartha Lakes Police Service, a resident reported the theft on Oct. 8.

“The complainant provided police with video surveillance from his home, which showed a man and woman stealing the plant.  The investigating officer reviewed the video and determined the identity of the couple responsible,” reads a media release.

Jason Gerrow, 41, and Pamela Shorey, 39, have both been charged with theft under $5,000 and possession of property obtained by crime under $5,000.

They’re both scheduled to appear in Lindsay court on Jan. 7, 2021.
