SaultOnline / ONNtv was made aware of a widely circulated video showing a blue car leaving an east end gas station at a high rate of speed.
The incident appeared to involve a police officer pointing his service weapon at the vehicle before it took off from the gas station.
We have learned from someone on scene the suspect allegedly stole $28 dollars worth of gas before being pursued by OPP, westbound on Trunk Road.
After reaching out to OPP we were informed by their communications division the investigation falls under the purview of Sault Ste. Marie Police Services.
An attempt to get comment from Sault Police Services has yet to be answered.
