One man and two women have been charged in connection to a vehicle theft in Guelph.

At around 10 p.m. Friday, officers noticed a vehicle parked on the side of the road in the downtown core of Guelph.

As officers drove past, they said they saw two women leave the vehicle.

“The vehicle had caught officer attention due to the entire rear window being smashed and covered in plastic,” police said in a media release.

Police then returned to the vehicle’s location and an investigation revealed that it was stolen.

A man was located in the vehicle and at 10:11 p.m., he was arrested.

During this time, police saw the other woman watching from a short distance away.

“Police began approaching her and she fled on foot. Officers caught up with her after a short foot chase and found her hiding in a bush behind a residential building. She was subsequently arrested,” police said.

A search revealed she had the keys to the vehicle.
