SOUTH DUNDAS – A Quebec man has been charged with theft and mischief after police got to the root of the problem on Highway 401.

It seems somebody was trying to pluck a few trees on Tuesday (June 19) morning from the westbound ONroute in South Dundas (commonly known as the Ingleside ONroute).

The 52-year-old suspect was caught by officers after somebody reported a suspicious person on the property.
