Timmins Police Services have arrested a man for stealing a vehicle.

A TPS officer in the early hours of Tuesday morning made a stop of a possible suspect due to a report of a stolen vehicle.

The officer who located the vehicle and made the stop arrested a 40-year-old Kirkland Lake man on charges of theft over $5,000 and possession of property obtained by crime.

The man has since been released from custody on a Promise to Appear in Timmins Court come September.
