A man from the City of Kawartha Lakes and one from Oshawa have been charged after allegedly attempting to steal an automated teller machine from a gas station in Caledon last fall, according to police.

Caledon OPP say the first reported incident occurred on Sept. 1 at a gas station on Highway 50 and Parr Boulevard. Police say the suspects were unsuccessful in their attempt to steal the station’s ATM.

On Nov. 6, suspects allegedly broke into the same business and attempted to steal the ATM but again were unsuccessful, OPP said.
