Toronto police say they arrested two suspects who they believe have been involved in up to 50 separate thefts from the LCBO.

Police say they were called to an LCBO in the city’s north end on Jan. 16 where they found two men in a vehicle.

After the car was stopped, police say the two men ran before being caught and arrested by officers.

Police say the suspects, aged 25 and 31, are facing multiple charges including theft over $5,000 and failing to comply with probation.

An opening soon sign is shown on an under construction LCBO store in Bowmanville, Ontario on Saturday July 20, 2013. Ontario’s liquor board has sweetened an already sweet deal for the federal government and foreign diplomats as it chops the prices they pay for beer, wine and booze almost in half.

Police say further investigation has led officers to believe that the two men have been involved in numerous incidents at other LCBO locations in the Greater Toronto Area.
