Three people from our area face a total of forty-nine charges after a police chase.
Around 11:30 last Thursday night, Perth County OPP say they were notified about three suspicious people with a possibly stolen truck on Toronto Street East in Mitchell.
Before they could get to the scene, police say the three suspects fled and they were later spotted in Vanastra trying to steal a motorcycle.
A Huron OPP officer arrived on scene and stopped the three who then took off in the stolen truck, intentionally colliding with a police cruiser along the way.
The truck then drove off with the three eventually getting into another truck in Walton with an officer trying to stop it but unable to.
A chase ensued with the suspects throwing stuff out of the windows to elude police who eventually blocked the truck in with two other police cruisers being rammed by the driver of the truck in the process.
A 32-year-old man from Huron East, a 20-year-old man from Huron East and a 17-year-old youth from West Perth all face a serious of serious charges including three counts of stealing a motor vehicle, theft, and possessing drugs.
The three remain in custody and are due to make appearances in court in Goderich on Thursday.
