Ontario Provincial Police officers are well trained for high-speed pursuits, but this one involved a transport truck.

Officers got a tip a man was driving a stolen transport truck northbound on Manning Rd. Sunday, so when they spotted the truck, they activated the emergency lights. The driver didn’t stop though, and tried to run from the police.

The chase ended on North Rear Rd. in Lakeshore, about 1.5 km from Manning Rd. and police took the driver into custody.

Police charged Larry Vanbraeckel, 20, of Windsor with failing to stop for police, dangerous driving, mischief, breach of recognizance, theft of a motor vehicle, and break and enter.
