LONDON, ONT. -- A London man is facing several charges after police had to use a tire spike to stop a stolen truck that allegedly rammed two cruisers in the west end of the city.

Damage to the three vehicles is estimated at $33,000.
A 32-year-old London man is charged with the following:
- Possession of property obtained by crime over $5000
- Operation while prohibited
- Fail to stop for police

- Resist arrest
He will appear in court on July 28.
