Three arrested after robbery suspects ram cruiser: Halton Police

 

The Halton Regional Police Service (HRPS) says it has made three arrests after the discovery of a stolen vehicle in Burlington led to a police cruised being rammed.

On Tuesday (Feb. 18) shortly after 1:00 p.m. police say they were contacted by a gas station to report a fuel theft. After an investigation, police say the van involved in the theft was stolen from Toronto.

Halton officers say they located the allegedly stolen vehicle inside a parking lot at the intersection of Guelph Line and Upper Middle Rd in Burlington at around 1:25 p.m. and parked behind the van to initiate an arrest of the occupants.

The van attempted to flee the scene and intentionally struck the police cruiser and other surrounding civilian vehicles,” said HRPS. “With the help of one off-duty Halton officer who happened to be in the lot, police were able to arrest all three suspects without injury.”
