Huron County OPP are currently searching for a wanted man after a search of a bush near Bannockburn Line and Centennial Road.
A police chase started Saturday afternoon in Perth County when an officer attempted to stop a suspicious vehicle in Mitchell.
The driver of a full size U-Haul truck failed to stop for the officer and drove westbound on Highway 8 at a high rate of speed, forcing vehicles off the road and failing to stop for stop signs.
It continued westbound into Huron County where it was spotted by a Huron OPP officer travelling southbound on Division Line from Front Road.
The driver of the truck eventually got the vehicle stuck at the end of Bannockburn Line between Centennial Road and Staffa Road.
The male driver fled on foot.
The suspect is described as a Caucasian male in his mid-20’s, about 5’5 to 5’6” tall.
He has dark scruffy hair and was last seen wearing a blue baseball cap and a white t-shirt.
Huron OPP is asking residents to report any suspicious activity.
