Two men are facing a number of charges after running from police in Quebec and then the Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry area.

Ontario Provincial Police officers were alerted on August 19, around 6 p.m., that a vehicle had hit a Surete Du Quebec Police cruiser and fled into Ontario via Highway 401.

The suspected vehicle was soon spotted on the highway, near Power Dam Drive, but its driver did not pull over and continued on, striking one of the OPP vehicles. The car then made its way into the eastbound lanes of Highway 401 while travelling westbound, and exited at Moulinette Road in South Stormont. 

Just a short time later, the vehicle was found abandoned in the area. Officers were then able to track down the driver and passenger a short distance away. 

Police recovered stolen property from the vehicle and methamphetamine.

No injuries were suffered by any officers in the incident. 

Matthew Steele, 22, of Guelph, was arrested and is charged with:

  • Flight while pursued by peace officers
  • Dangerous Operation of a motor vehicle
  • Fail to Comply with conditions of a probation order (two counts)
  • Operation while prohibited
  • Possession of property obtained by crime - under $5000
  • Fail to stop after an accident
  • Mischief over $5000
  • Possession of a controlled substance

He was held in custody (bail) and is scheduled to appear in the Ontario Court of Justice in Cornwall.

Adlyn Miller, 26, of Burlington, was arrested and is charged with:

  • Fail to Comply with conditions of a undertaking
  • Possession of property obtained by crime - under $5,000
  • Possession of a controlled substance

She was released from custody and is scheduled to appear in Cornwall Court on September 26.
