OPP arrests four men after brief pursuit

Three men from the Toronto area are charged after a brief pursuit involving Lennox and Addington OPP.

At 3 a.m. Sunday, police responded to reports of a vehicle said to be involved in a previous car jacking in the Peel region that was driving east on Highway 401 near Napanee.

Police saw the vehicle driving east as it drove into Lennox and Addington and tried to stop it, but the driver did not stop and left the freeway at Shannonville Road.

Shortly afterwards, the vehicle returned to the highway and a suspect left on foot before being caught by a police dog.

The other three passengers in the vehicle were arrested when the vehicle stopped near Palace Road after police used a tire emptying device.

In the end, the collaborative efforts between Lennox and Addington, Quinte West and Tyendinaga First Nations OPP departments, as well as the emergency response team and the dog units, resulted in four arrests.

As a result, 25-year-old Simon Brar and 22-year-old Hisham Kashif of Brampton, 20-year-old Teshay McIntosh of Etobicoke and 19-year-old Ladeja Vizuete of Mississauga were arrested and charged with possession of property obtained by crime.

All four were released on parole and handed over to Peel Regional Police to continue their investigation.
