Two Hamilton residents have been arrested after police attempted to stop a stolen vehicle in Burlington.
Just after 1 a.m. Thursday, a Halton Police officer tried to stop a black Dodge Ram pickup truck in the Plains Road and Daryl Drive area, but the driver took off at a high rate of speed.
A few minutes later, police say a concerned citizen from the Snake Road area contacted them after the same black truck drove onto a front lawn, where it was abandoned with its engine running and headlights on.
The Canine Unit was called in and located two suspects hiding near the Notre Dame Motherhouse, where a 25-year-old woman and 29-year-old man, both from Hamilton, were taken into custody on several charges.
Police say the pickup truck had been stolen from Hamilton and break-and-enter tools were located within the vehicle.
