And in Wallaceburg Tuesday morning, a couple of guys thought it would be a good idea to steal two shovels from Wal-Mart.

A search of one yielded a quantity of meth as well.

A 29-year-old Wallaceburg man and a 31-year-old Walpole Island man are charged with theft and possession of stolen property. The Wallaceburg man is also charged with drug possession and failing to comply with a probation order.
