UPDATE: Charges laid after foot chase downtown Lindsay Thursday afternoon

KAWARTHA LAKES- A Montreal man has been charged after running from police on Thursday afternoon in Lindsay.

Kawartha Lakes Police say they were responding to a Fraud in progress call at a downtown Lindsay bank.

A teller became suspicious of identification that was being used by a person who had recently opened an account at the bank and called police. When police arrived the suspect was still in the bank, but while he was being pointed out to them, he fled out the front door.


Officers took up the chase, with the man initially evading apprehension. A short time later a keen eyed officer spotted the man hiding on a Russell Street East porch. The man was then arrested without incident.

23-year-old Lenin Eldridge Aular of Montreal has been charged with Uttering a Forged Document and Fraud Under $5000.00.

The chase down Kent Street caused quite a stir with people coming out of stores to watch.

A number of cruisers and the canine unit were involved in the search.
