Mantifel was also charged with three counts of theft over $5,000, five counts of mischief under $5,000, two counts of failure to comply with a release order and one count each of theft under $5,000, driving while under suspension, driving a motor vehicle with an open container of liquor and having care or control of a vehicle with cannabis readily available.

Barnsley was also charged with resisting a peace officer and permitting an unlicensed person to drive a vehicle.

Koch was additionally charged with two counts of failure to comply with probation.

All three were held in custody and are scheduled for bail hearings in court in Belleville on Jan. 16, OPP said Friday.

“Central Hastings OPP is warning contractors, that leaving an enclosed trailer at a job site location can put you at risk for being the victim of a theft,” OPP said.

Police say the seizure follows a similar one in December 202 in which approximately $70,000 worth of stolen tools were recovered from the same location. In that incident, Mantifel and Barnsley were also arrested along with one other suspect.
