Provincial police have announced charges against an 18-year-old Aylmer man after a taxi was taken last week in London.

The cab was reported stolen around 3 a.m. Wednesday.

Police found it on Talbot Line outside of Aylmer about an hour later and the driver was arrested after a short foot chase.

An officer fired their gun during the arrest and another one used a conductive energy weapon.

The suspect is charged with flight from a peace officer and possession of property obtained by crime over five thousand dollars.
