Ontario Men Arrested Near Wynyard in Stolen Vehicle

Two Ontario men are in custody in connection with an incident in Wynyard, involving a stolen vehicle.
On Monday, a Mountie conducting patrols ran the licence plate of a vehicle, which came back as stolen from Ontario.
The officer followed the vehicle onto Highway 16, where he initiated a traffic stop, but when he approached on foot, the driver sped into Wynyard.
The suspect reached speeds of over 100 kilometres per hour within the town, so a spike belt had to be used, and the driver and passenger were arrested about 6 kilometres west of Wynyard.
23-year-old John Hipwell and 23-year-old Lonnie Herrington appeared in Yorkton Provincial Court yesterday (Tue), and were remanded in custody for a bail hearing on Friday.
