Gatineau police have arrested four Montreal men in their 20s in connection with the overnight theft of a high-value truck in the Masson-Angers sector.
In a release, police said suspects were spotted at about 3 a.m. stealing a Dodge RAM 1500 pickup truck on Rue des Servantes.
Police tried to intercept the stolen vehicle, with one suspect on board, as well as an escort vehicle carrying three suspects.
The suspects fled, initiating a chase. Police were able to intercept the escort vehicle on Highway 148, but the stolen truck continued along Highway 148 to the town of Thurso.
Minutes later the truck went off the road and the suspect fled on foot.
The Sûreté du Québec was called for assistance, but Gatineau officers collared the man a few minutes later.
The suspects are expected to be charged with vehicle theft, possession of burglary tools and fleeing the scene of a crime.
All four are expected to be released on a promise to appear at a future court date.
