Durham police say two men are facing charges after a Brock Township resident caught them stealing marijuana from his garden. The resident has a license to grow medical marijuana for personal use. He reportedly scared off the suspects who fled in a vehicle.
Police say the resident then followed the suspects in his own vehicle, and provided provincial police with the license plate number. Officers caught up to the suspects in Sebright.
Shane Schneider, 29, of Elmvale Boulevard in Stouffville, and Jesse Trudel, 29, of Hwy 48. in Pefferlaw, are both charged with theft over $5,000.
