Officers from the Lennox and Addington (L&A) OPP Detachment were received a report of a stolen vehicle travelling westbound on Highway 401 in their jurisdiction at approximately 7 p.m. on Saturday, Mar. 12, 2022, the OPP said in a press release. With all active officers alerted, an officer with the South Frontenac OPP observed the suspect vehicle and was able to communicate that vehicle’s whereabouts to officers with the L&A Detachment. Subsequently, the L&A OPP officers were able to set up on the highway and use a tire deflation device – more commonly referred to as a ‘spike strip’) to stop the vehicle in question.

At that time, the two suspects within the vehicle fled on foot, however, they were quickly apprehended by the L&A Detachment officers, the OPP said on Tuesday, Mar. 15, 2022.

As a result, Joseph King, 40, of Montreal, Que., and Kalvin Tinker, 19, of Lachine, Que., were both charged with:

  • Theft of a motor vehicle
  • Possession of property obtained by crime over $5,000
  • Possession of cannabis for the purpose of distributing
  • Possession of a Schedule 1 substance for the purpose of trafficking

Tinker was further charged with:

  • Failure to comply with a release order
  • Possession of an identity document of another person
