2 Londoners charged after 2 separate instances of stolen vehicle drawing police attention

In less than eight hours, London police charged two allegedly impaired drivers involved in two separate incidents involving stolen vehicles.

The first incident began around 6:10 p.m. Monday when police say a motorcycle heading north on Elgin Street ran a stop sign and struck the side of a police cruiser heading east on Hamilton Road.

According to police, an investigation revealed the motorcycle had been reported stolen on Aug. 16, 2019. The suspect was arrested, taken to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries and later released back into police custody with minor injuries, police say.

The officer in the cruiser was not injured, but the cruiser suffered about $15,000 worth of damage, according to police.

Police say a 41-year-old London man has been charged with impaired operation of a vehicle, altering plates, possession of property obtained by crime, possession of a Schedule 1 substance and driving while under suspension.
