NORTH DUNDAS — A man and a woman from North Dundas are both accused of stealing clothing from a donation bin at St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church in Chesterville.

The church hosts a popular local thrift store in its basement, Ye Olde Bargain Shoppe, and accepts donations of clothing.

The SD&G OPP earlier reported that somebody removed various clothing items from the locked drop-off bin outside the Mill Street address, shortly before 8:30 a.m. on Sept. 26. A white SUV was spotted in the area at the time, and the detachment also received two other complaints “regarding these thefts.”

North Dundas residents Ashley Monette, 29, and Christopher Moore, 41, were arrested when an investigation concluded Nov. 2, according to the SD&G OPP. Both are charged with theft under $5,000 — four counts for Monette and two counts for Moore.

Moore also faces three counts of driving under suspension.

They were both released from custody to appear Dec. 4 in Morrisburg court.
