Windsor Police say a man was working on house construction on Lublin Avenue on Wednesday when he realized that a suspect had just stolen tools from his vehicle. The suspect fled the area in a rented vehicle.

The victim and a witness began to follow the vehicle as they called police to relay the information.

The vehicle stopped at the intersection of Lauzon Parkway and Lauzon Line. The victim approached the vehicle, but it then sped off through a red light and collided with a grey minivan.

There were no injuries reported from the collision.

The suspect then drove the vehicle into a field, removed a bicycle, and attempted to flee the area on the bicycle.

Responding officers converged in the area, located and arrested the suspect without incident.

Officers determined that the bicycle the suspect was riding had been previously reported as stolen. Inside the rented vehicle, officers located a number of suspected stolen items, including tools that were confirmed as being owned by the original victim.

Police say a search of the suspect found him to be in possession of a small quantity of suspected methamphetamine.

Officers investigating determined that the rented vehicle had actually been stolen. Investigators were also able to link the suspect to a break and enter which occurred to a business located in the 7000 block of Smith Industrial Drive in the Town of Amherstburg on May 20, 2019.
