Wanted Man Rams Police Vehicle Trying To Escape Officers

A man who has been on the run from police for over a week, has been arrested by Huron County OPP after numerous attempts to evade officers.

The Ontario Provincial Police say on Friday morning around 11am, officers spotted a stolen Chevrolet Camaro in Clinton, but the vehicle took off at a high rate of speed to escape police.  The vehicle was later spotted by a Perth County OPP officer, this time in Atwood, but the driver was able to make another speedy getaway. The stolen Camaro was then found abandoned south of Palmerston.

Police say the driver of the vehicle stole a Dodge Ram pickup truck in Palmerston and returned to Huron County near Brussels.  The driver then abandoned that vehicle and stole a GMC pickup truck.

A number of unmarked police vehicles, with assistance from an OPP airplane, scoured the area for a suspect and located the vehicle on C-Line Rd. south of Gorrie.  The driver attempted to get away again by ramming the pickup truck into a police vehicle, but was unsuccessful.

At around 5pm, 33-year-old Kyle Moore of no fixed address was arrested.

Moore is facing charges in connection a number of crimes, including an attempted theft in Zurich, the assault of a Wingham police officer in Bluevale, stealing a police cruiser, and the incidents that took place in Huron and Perth counties on Friday.  He was also wanted by police in Sarnia for driving while disqualified, resisting a police officer and possession of stolen property.

Moore remains in custody with a video bail hearing scheduled for Saturday.
