In Milton, two individuals were taken into custody following a head-on collision between a Halton police cruiser and an allegedly stolen vehicle. The incident occurred on Feb. 15, just past 8:30 p.m. at Esquesing Line and Lawson Rd.
Halton officers spotted a black Lexus sedan in the vicinity of James Snow Pkwy. and Steeles Ave. E. during an investigation that discovered the car had been reported stolen in Peel earlier that day. As the officers tried to pull over the vehicle, it accelerated and collided with the police cruiser.
The two suspects abandoned the car and ran away, but the officers pursued them and captured them shortly thereafter. Nobody was injured as a result of the accident.
Arvind Singh, 24, from Brampton, is charged with possession of property obtained by crime and possession of heroin, while Rajbir Singh, 23, from Toronto, is charged with possession of property obtained by crime, possession of heroin, fleeing from police, assault with intent to resist arrest, and obstructing an officer.
