A man has been charged after buying 18 barbeques at the wrong price with fraudulent gift cards from Home Depot stores in the GTA, and selling the grills online.

It all began in May, with BBQ season just around the corner.

Police allege the man would go into a Home Depot and remove the price tag from a $1,599 BBQ and swap it with the price tag of a $219.99 grill. At that reduced price, the man would allegedly purchase the barbeque with a “fraudulently obtained Home Depot gift card,” police said. He would then sell the grills online, it is alleged.

Police are also looking for a second man, believed to have been involved in the heist.

Jefferey Wilson, 42, has been charged with 18 counts of fraud under $5,000 and possession of property obtained by crime, over $5,000.

The next court date is Wed. June 28.

Bob Barker is OK after suffering fall, checking into hospital .
Game show legend Bob Barker is OK after suffering a fall and hitting his head at his California home. The former "The Price is Right" host, 93, was briefly hospitalized last week at the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles after he slipped in a bathroom at his Hollywood Hills residence, a rep for Barker confirmed to the Daily News. Barker experienced some discomfort and was taken to the Emergency Room by his housekeeper, but was released several hours later after doctors determined he was doing well. A rep for Barker said the accident wasn't as serious as the one he suffered two years ago, when he slipped on the sidewalk outside his Southern California home and hit his head. Barker received stitches on his forehead following that accident, during which he also injured his knee. The veteran entertainer and animal rights activist has battled a series of health issues over the years, including strokes in 1991 and 2002, as well as several mild bouts with skin cancer. Barker retired from "The Price is Right" in 2007 after hosting the show for 35 years. Barker, who spent more than 50 years as a TV host overall, won 19 Emmys during his career — including 14 for outstanding game show host.
