Two people from Mississauga and Caledon have been charged and police are still searching for the driver of a stolen pick-up truck after leading officers on a chase in Orangeville.

The OPP says the incident started around 6:40 p.m. on Tuesday (July 11) when an officer from the Dufferin detachment on patrol spotted a grey 2017 Ford F150 pick-up truck on Broadway in Orangeville that had been reported stolen.

The officer pulled the pick-up over, and that’s when two people exited the truck before the driver took off “in a dangerous manner,” police said. Officers were unable to get the driver to stop so police broke off the chase out of concern for public safety.

Two people, a 24-year-old from Mississauga and a 42-year-old from Caledon, were arrested and charged with one count each of possession of property obtained by crime over $5,000, but police say the driver of the stolen pick-up trick is still at large.

Police did not disclose the names of the accused, who are scheduled to appear before an Orangeville court in August to answer the charges. None of the allegations have been proven in court.

The suspect vehicle is described as a grey 2017 Ford F150. Anyone with information about this incident or any other suspected unlawful activity is asked to contact the OPP at 1-888-310-1122.
