A woman is facing multiple charges after being accused of a crime spree across Oakville, which included stealing from a well-known video game maker.

Investigators say the accused committed a series of thefts between Dec. 24 and Jan. 23, which included computer equipment from a division of the company that makes Grand Theft Auto video games.

The 30-year-old from Oakville is alleged to have taken $66,000 worth of equipment and accessories from the Rockstar Games office near the QEW and Trafalgar Road on Christmas Eve.
