The stolen vehicle was involved in two minor motor vehicle collisions near the intersections of St. Marys Avenue and Main Street as well as Broadway and Main Street. The collisions resulted in approximately $7,500.00 to the vehicles and there were no injuries as a result.
The stolen vehicle was subsequently abandoned in the area of Kennedy Street and Broadway, when it came to rest in a flowerbed.
