When officers arrived, the van took off, leading officers on a brief pursuit around the area but due to safety, officers held back and lost sight of the van. A short time later they discovered it parked behind the Quiznos plaza at Ritson and Taunton with no one inside. Durham Regional Police Service K-9 Unit attended the scene where PSD Rogue was deployed to try to track the suspect(s).
No suspect(s) were located, and the investigation continues. The van had been reported stolen in Toronto in early December.
