Crime Explosion Occurs When Fleeing Coat Thief Struck in Hit and Run

Police in Toronto report that a fleeing thief was struck by a car in a hit and run on Saturday evening while being chased by a retail store employee.

The thief (and victim) was being chased after stealing multiple coats when he was struck by a vehicle. The vehicle then fled the scene, but was apprehended by police a short time later.

When the vehicle was stopped, officers found drugs on the passenger and ended up bringing both the driver and the passenger into custody. Charges are also pending against the victim of the hit and run, who sustained serious leg injuries, for all of the coat theft.

Three crimes for the price of probably a lot of money, when all is said and done!
