Two people have been charged after a crash in a stolen vehicle.

OPP say that around 1:20pm on September 18th, 2016 they were called to a hit and run crash on Road 3 West at McCain Side road in Kingsville.

A witness at the scene led police to a grey Pontiac which had been occupied by a male and a female and had struck an orange Honda and then fled the scene. The vehicle was located parked and unoccupied a short distance from the location of the collision.

Police observed a male and a female running through a bean field to the rear of residences on Road 2 West.

Officers received information that the Pontiac had recently been stolen from Amherstburg and that it was linked to several recent thefts from vehicles and a break and enter in that municipality.

Containment of the area and a search by members from the Kingsville OPP detachment and surrounding detachments resulted in the tracking, location and arrest of the two persons near the property of the Kingsville Golf and Country Club in the 600 block of Essex County Road 20.

Joseph Hanlon, age 27 of Amherstburg is chard with failing to remain at the scene of an accident, possession of property obtained by crime under $5,000, and possession of break and enter tools.
