Police arrive in time to track down Embro theft culprits

St. Marys Journal Argus

EMBRO — Officers of the Oxford County Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) arrested two London residents during their investigation into a break and enter that occurred on Sunday, Nov. 3 in Embro.

Police report that, at approximately 2:47 a.m. they responded to a break and enter in progress at the Highland Restaurant located on Commissioners Street in Embro. Investigation revealed that the Automatic Teller Machine inside the restaurant had been stolen, and that a dark-coloured Buick Rendezvous had been seen in the area by a resident.

While officers were patrolling the area of the break and enter, they observed a Ford F-150 pick-up truck travelling with the Buick. A traffic stop was initiated, but the vehicles failed to stop for police. A pursuit was initiated.

Contact was lost with the Buick while the pursuit was continued with the pick-up. The pursuit was then terminated for safety reasons.

Some time later, the Buick was observed and stopped for speeding, and the male driver was subsequently arrested.

The pick-up was later recovered in the City of London, and had been reported as a stolen vehicle.

As a result of the investigation, one other male was arrested by police.

Shane Andrews, age 37, has been charged with break and enter to commit a crime; vehicle theft; possession of property obtained by crime (over $5,000); and failure to comply with a probation order.

Alain Cloutier, age 36, has been charged with break and enter to commit a crime; vehicle theft; and possession of property obtained by crime (over $5,000). Both were being held for bail hearings and are scheduled to appear in the Ontario Court of Justice in Woodstock.
