Man With Suspended Licence Nabbed Driving Stolen Car in Milton
A 34-year-old man -with a suspended driver’s licence- is facing charges after a running vehicle was stolen from a Hamilton home.
The incident took place on June 22 at 11:44 p.m.
That’s when Halton police were alerted to a 2018 Audi that was believed to be entering Burlington.
Officers located the Audi travelling south on Guelph Line entering the eastbound QEW.
An unmarked police vehicle followed as it traveled to Bronte and Britannia roads in Milton, where it stopped to make a left turn.
Numerous police vehicles blocked the vehicle from moving.
The driver tried to flee on foot but was arrested after a brief struggle.
There had been no previous attempts to stop the vehicle, say police, and the suspect’s driving posed no risk to public safety at any time.
Officers searched the stolen vehicle, seizing a Conducted Energy Weapon (CEW) in the shape of brass knuckles on the front passenger seat.
The Audi had been left running when it was taken from a Hamilton home earlier in the day.
Marven Goudie, of no fixed address, is charged with theft of motor vehicle; possession of property obtained by crime over $5,000; resisting arrest; possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose; unauthorized possession of a weapon; three counts of possession of prohibited weapon contrary to prohibition order; two counts of fail to comply with probation; driving while suspended.
Goudie was held for bail
