Some solid investigative work has led to charges against a Hamilton teenager.
Police were called last week about a stolen car on Macaulay Street East in the north end.
Investigators soon found the vehicle at a local auto parts and wreckers shop, where a male and female sold the car for scrap.
The suspect was arrested at his home just after 12 o'clock Wednesday morning.
The 17-year-old boy has been charged with possession of stolen property, uttering a forged document, personation and proceeds of crime.
