Hamilton Police have charged two men after a Binbrook resident witnessed someone inside his car early Monday morning.
Upon stepping out into the street the owner of the vehicle observed a man under a streetlight rummaging through several backpacks.
When the owner yelled, instructing the man to give the items back, he took off into a field.
Police say several neighbours then exited their homes to chase down the man.
An investigation lead to the arrest of two 19 year old men who now face charges for theft under 5,000.
Both men were released on promise to appear with a future court date.
