The incident started on Jun. 19 at around 12:40 p.m. when a theft of food was reported at a Forest dining establishment.
A short time later, a theft was reported from a Forest Audio Video store and then from a Kettle Point Smoke Shop.
The plate on the 2012 Toyota van indicated it to be a stolen vehicle from Lucan the previous day.
Another short time later, an officer on patrol located the stolen vehicle at London Line and Forest Road.
An attempt was made to stop the vehicle east of Warwick Village on Egremont Road, but the culprits failed to do so. The vehicle instead sped off east on Egremont Road allegedly reaching dangerous speeds.
In the interest of public safety, police discontinued their attempt to stop the fleeing van. The van and those inside it were last seen heading east on Zion Line into Middlesex County.
The stolen vehicle is described as a grey 2012 Toyota Sienna van with an Ontario plate on it that was recorded as BNCZ 302.
Police will continue to investigate all the related occurrences to assist in identifying those suspects involved.
If anyone locates the stolen vehicle, they are asked to not approach it but instead contact local police immediately with its location.
