(HURON EAST, ON) – Huron County Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) has laid several charges against a Waterloo resident in connection with a recent stolen vehicle investigation.
On January 2, 2021 at approximately 6:14 p.m. a pizza delivery driver dropped off a pizza at a residence located in Vanastra and upon returning to his vehicle he noticed it had been stolen. The victim had left the unattended vehicle running while he did the drop off and that was enough of an opportunity for the thief to strike.
Police immediately began patrolling for the stolen vehicle and shortly thereafter it was spotted in nearby Clinton. After a short chase the accused drove down a dead-end road and came to a stop. The accused attempted to flee on foot but was quickly taken into custody.
Jodi TALBOT, 37 years of age from Waterloo has been charged with Theft of Motor Vehicle, Possession of Stolen Property Under $5,000, Flight from Police and Breach of Court Release. The accused has since been released from custody with a court appearance scheduled for February 8, 2021 at the Ontario Court of Justice – Goderich.
