Note to criminals, if AIR1 is on you, then its pretty much game over.
On August 2, 2018, around midnight, a stolen vehicle was observed in the area of McGregor Street and Boyd Avenue.
AIR1 was assigned to track the stolen vehicle. Attempts to stop the vehicle at McGregor Street and Dufferin Avenue failed and the vehicle fled at a high rate of speed.
Since AIR1 was tracking, officers were able to back off and increased their distance. This prevented accidents that often accompany a high-speed chase.
The stolen vehicle eventually crashed through a guardrail and came to a stop at Hallet Street and Rover Avenue. The male suspect fled from the vehicle and was tracked as he attempted to hide in bush/tree cover.
The male was taken into custody a short time later.
