Car Chase Suspect Charged With Attempted Murder

Turns out a young man who led local OPP officers on a car chase last week is wanted for more than just excessive speeding.

It was last Thursday (March 9th)  around 5PM when police located a vehicle that refused to stop when requested.

The vehicle traveled through multiple jurisdictions, even evading a spike belt before finally being stopped on Highway 401 west of Long Beach.

22 year old Brandon Harding-Macdow of the Toronto area faces charges of Attempted Murder, Dangerous Driving, Driving while Disqualified, Flight From Police, Possession of Stolen Property Under $5000 among others.

A 17 year old male passenger from Ajax, faces charges of Flight From Police and Possession of Stolen Property Under $5000.

Harding-Macdow remains in custody pending a bail hearing scheduled for this Friday.

The 17 year old male youth was released pending a future court appearance.

The investigation is on-going.
