Male Sought in South-end Guelph Vehicle Theft

The Guelph Police Service is attempting to identify the male in the attached photo as it continues to investigate a vehicle theft during which the owner was dragged a short distance.

Just before 8 a.m. June 19, police were called to a plaza near Kortright Road West and Ironwood Road. The victim reported he left his 2009 Mazda 3 running while he went into a store, and came out a short time later to see his vehicle being reversed from the parking spot. He grabbed onto the car and was dragged approximately three metres before falling to the ground, sustaining cuts and scrapes to his arms and legs.


The suspect was described as a white male with a goatee and chin-strap beard. He was wearing a black t-shirt, jeans and brown boots or shoes and carrying a pink or purple backpack and a black backpack.

The vehicle was recovered later the same day northeast of Mount Forest. It had been set on fire and was completely destroyed.

Anyone with information or who recognizes the male in the photograph is asked to call Detective Sergeant Ian Smith of the Guelph Police Service Break Enter Auto Theft Unit at 519-824-1212, ext. 7125, email him at ismith@guelphpolice.ca, leave an anonymous message for Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) or leave an anonymous tip online at www.csgw.tips.
