Members of Kings District RCMP apprehended an out-of-area shoplifting ring operating in New Minas July 23.
When the 35-year-old male and two females, ages 24 and 28, were arrested, police recovered over $2,300 in stolen property.
Const. Blair MacMurtery confirmed the individuals were not local, but came from out of the area for the specific purpose of shoplifting.
