On Aug. 9, 2018 at approximately 10:04 p.m., Guelph Police received a call in regard to a suspicious vehicle on Fife Road.  It was learned that the vehicle was stolen and a male was inside of the vehicle.

Police attended to the area and observed the male running north on Fife Road by the railway tracks.  Police quickly set up a perimeter and K9 Charger was deployed. The K9 track led to the apprehension of the male suspect.

As a result, Justin Roach, a 33-year-old Guelph male, was charged with possession of property obtained by crime over $5,000, possession of identification documents, possession of property obtained by crime under $5,000, and possession of break and enter tools. Roach is scheduled to appear in court on Sept. 28, 2018.
