North Glengarry man leads police on foot chase after stealing purse

On October 14, a 20-year-old man from North Glengarry lead police on a chase down Main Street, in Alexandria, after he allegedly removed a purse from a vehicle and ran away. Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) officers from the Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry detachment chased after the suspect, who was apprehended near Bishop Street a short time later. The man was arrested and the stolen purse was recovered.

Police have charged the suspect with “Theft Under $5,000” and with three breaches of failing to comply with conditions issued by the courts. The man was held in custody pending a bail hearing at the Ontario Court of Justice, in Cornwall.
