Police Arrest Couple Wanted in Massive ‘Crime Spree’ | Halton …

A man and woman wanted in connection with a crime spree spanning across southern Ontario – including Halton – have been arrested, say Niagara police.

Kevin Stapleford-Francalanza, 24, and Rachel Hayden, 22 were wanted by several police services – such as Brantford, Waterloo, Guelph, and London – on a number of charges ranging from vehicle and gas theft to shoplifting.

They were handcuffed in “another jurisdiction” outside of Niagara on Sept. 29.

There were at least 25 interactions with the suspects from Aug. 18 to Sept. 26 — the most recent one in a Niagara-on-the-Lake parking lot.

That’s where the suspects allegedly damaged several police cruisers and civilian vehicles while attempting to evade arrest.

Police are thanking the public for their help.
