After allegedly stealing truck thieves stop to watch Grey Cup, get caught

Two men with a passion for the CFL just couldn’t miss the Grey Cup game on Sunday, but it led to them being caught for stealing a truck.

Police say officers were called about a break and enter at the Glanbrook Township Roads department at 2111 Binbrook Rd. around 7:30 p.m. The two men smashed out a window and stole tools from the stockroom, police said in a news release, and then took off in a stolen City of Hamilton truck, according to CBC.

Police then tracked down the vehicle at the Checkered Flag Bar and Grill in Mount Hope. Officers went inside and found the two men — one of whom had the keys to the truck inside his pocket, police say.

“They just went inside and watched the game,” said Const. Lorraine Edwards.

A 44-year-old Glanbrook man and a 48-year-old Glanbrook man have both been charged with breaking and entering, possession of burglary tools, and possession of stolen property worth over $5,000.

That decision is more bone-headed than Bo Levi Mitchell – while in field goal range – throwing into double coverage.
