Around 10 p.m., later that night, a truck stolen from the region of Peel turned up in Oakville on Threshing Mill Boulevard, near Trafalgar Road. The vehicle, a Freightliner truck, was found unoccupied by Halton Regional Police Service (HRPS).

On Sunday, Apr. 23, HRPS officers attended the scene of a motor vehicle collision near Dunedin Road and Ford Drive. After conducting an investigation, an 18-year-old male driver was found to be intoxicated. He has been charged with operation while impaired and blood alcohol concentration 80mgs or more, within two hours.
