Peel Regional Police say three of their cruisers boxed in a reportedly stolen vehicle during a “strategic” traffic stop in Brampton on Monday night.

Investigators said they first spotted the vehicle travelling southbound on Main Street North at Bovaird Drive at around 11:50 p.m. The strategic stop by officers happened a short distance away at Main Street North and English Street, just north of Vodden Street.

The three cruisers involved sustained minor front-bumper damage during what police referred to as a “tandem stop,” a procedure in which a vehicle is boxed in as a way to stop it.

Police said three male suspects were taken into custody, and one of them was taken to hospital with minor injuries.
