A 22-year-old man is in custody following an incident last night that started with a report of a stolen vehicle in Fort Frances.

When OPP officers spotted it, the driver sped away.

A short pursuit took place, but ended because of safety concerns.

The vehicle was eventually located again east of Fort Frances where officers were able to use a spike belt to stop the vehicle and arrest the driver.

The man from Seine River First Nation makes a court appearance today on several charges including dangerous driving and possession of stolen property.
