LONDON, ONT -- Having a snooze proved costly for two alleged thieves from Owen Sound.
Tuesday morning OPP officers in Georgian Bluffs responded to a report of a suspicious vehicle parked behind a business.
When officers arrived on scene, they found two men asleep in a vehicle surrounded by what appeared to be stolen items.
Police woke the two men to arrest them and launched an investigation.
Through the investigation, they recovered a stolen SUV, drugs, and drug paraphernalia.
The two men, a 23-year-old and a 20-year-old both from Owen Sound, were charged with several drug related charges and possession of property obtained by crime.
