Three people from Calgary face more than 20 charges following a police investigation into stolen vehicles.

Police arrested the trio Tuesday afternoon after officers with the Calgary Police Service auto theft team spotted a stolen Honda Civic driving in the Cross Iron Mills parking lot.

Police said the officers watched two people get out of the stolen Civic and “attempt to steal a vehicle that was parked in the mall parking lot but were unsuccessful.”

Police said the pair then attempted to steal a licence plate from another vehicle in the parking lot and that’s when investigators intervened.
