Early Thursday morning, November 8, 2018, officers patrolling in the area of Ellice Avenue and Arlington Street were flagged down by an employee of a store that had just been robbed.
Police saw the vehicle take off and followed it to Portage Avenue and Erin Street where a stop stick was deployed by other officers. The suspect vehicle came to a stop on Portage Avenue a few blocks later.
As police approached the vehicle they noticed a .22 calibre rifle between the driver and passenger.
The 17-year-old female passenger and the 31-year-old male driver were taken into custody and face a number of weapon-related and property crime charges. The driver is also facing charges for driving while disqualified and failing to comply with a Probation Order.
Both suspects were detained in custody
