AUGUSTA TOWNSHIP – Grenville County OPP say one of their police officers had their cruiser hit while chasing a trio of break-in suspects from Cornwall and Akwesasne.
Police received a call about a break-in to a home on County Road 15 on Wednesday morning (Dec. 13) after the trio had allegedly stolen the homeowner’s vehicle.
There was a “brief pursuit where one officer’s cruiser was struck.”
OPP finally found the vehicle on County Road 6 in Elizabethtown-Kitley Township after the getaway car conked out – the suspects had put stolen diesel into the gas tank.
