Police have seized a vehicle stolen from the York Region in the Marysville area following a brief pursuit on Ontario’s busiest highway.

The stolen vehicle was located by officers from the Lennox and Addington (L&A) County Detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) while travelling on Highway 401 at Marysville Road. The driver was arrested and is now facing charges, the OPP said.

According to a release from the OPP, shortly after 7 a.m. on Monday, Apr. 22, 2024, officers from the L&A County OPP responded to a report of a stolen vehicle from York Regional Police.

“Police located the stolen vehicle driving eastbound on Highway 401 at Marysville Road. Officers confirmed it was the vehicle stolen from York Region and attempted to stop the vehicle,” the OPP stated.

“The vehicle failed to stop for police and officers deployed a Tire Deflation Device also known as a spike belt to safely bring the vehicle to a stop just past the Old Wilton Road overpass. The lone male driver was arrested by police without incident.”

As a result of this investigation, L&A County OPP has charged Brandon Farrow-Loiselle, age 31, of Ottawa, with:

  • Possession of proceeds of property obtained by crime over $5,000
  • Operation of a motor vehicle while prohibited

Farrow-Loiselle was reportedly held for a bail hearing and is scheduled to appear at the Ontario Court of Justice in Greater Napanee on a later date.
