A homicide investigation underway by Sarnia Police led to the involvement of the OPP in a highway chase. In the early hours of Sunday morning, the OPP pursued a vehicle of interest in the investigation into the death of 26-year-old Jonathan Patrick Pike.
The pursuit happened in the area of Michigan Line and Highway 21. Police used a spike bar to end the chase. A 27-year-old woman and a 30-year-old man in the vehicle were arrested and are facing charges under the Criminal Code and Controlled Drugs and Substance Act. None of those charges are related to the homicide.
