Mississauga Man Charged After Reportedly Ramming Police Car and Fleeing
A Mississauga man is facing multiple charges following a recent incident in Mississauga.
Shortly after 9:00 p.m. on Friday, August 9, police were called regarding a suspicious cube van in the area of Britannia Road and Tomken Road.
The caller believed the vehicle’s occupant was in the process of committing a break and enter at a commercial property.
“As officers entered into the parking lot of the commercial property, the suspect entered the cube van and used it to ram a police car and escape onto the roadway,” police say.
A tire deflation device was successfully used to deflate the vehicle’s tires, forcing it to come to a stop a short distance later.
The vehicle was later determined to be stolen.
A 26 year old Mississauga man was taken into custody. He is charged with dangerous operation of a motor vehicle, flight from peace officer, possession of property obtained by crime, failure to comply with recognizance, and possession of a controlled substance.
The accused is set to appear in court on Saturday, August 10.
