A long list of charges was handed to a Mississauga man after the OPP followed a stolen truck over twenty-five kilometres across Perth County.

Shortly after 1:00 p.m. on Monday, a Wellington County OPP officer spotted a pickup truck that was reported stolen driving through Palmerston.  The officer cautiously followed as arrangements were made with other cruisers to stop the truck.

The pickup truck was followed towards Listowel.  Attempts were made to pull the truck over northwest of Listowel at Line 87 and Road 167, but the driver failed to stop.    A tire deflation device was laid down on the roadway but the pickup avoided it by veering around it, colliding with one of the police cruisers, causing minor damage.

A short time later, near Atwood, a second tire deflation device was utilized and the truck was finally stopped and the driver was apprehended without further issues.

A 23-year-old Mississauga man is facing a list of charges including, possession of property obtained by crime, flight from police, dangerous driving and driving while disqualified.  He is scheduled to appear in court on Tuesday, Sept. 27, 2016
