Police have charged two men with stealing 68 city newspaper boxes.

Sixty-five of the boxes were recovered on April 4th.

They were found at a home in the North End, but came from locations all over the city.

Three more newspaper boxes have been stolen since that time.  Police believe the men stole the boxes for the change inside. 

Police have charged a 35-year-old man with three counts of theft under $5000.

Bozidar Gomercic, 42, faces theft, and warrant violation charges. He is being held at the Remand Centre.

Police say the arrests come after a tip from the public.

The newspaper boxes were stolen over a two year period, and have an estimated value of more than $42,000.
