(WINDSOR, ON) – A Windsor man wanted in connection to two police investigations was arrested in a high-risk takedown by Windsor Police on Saturday. Robert Saumure, 34, was spotted by an off-duty officer and members of the Emergency Service Unit conducted the vehicle stop on Dougall Avenue near EC Row Expressway.
Saumure was identified by investigators after depositing a stolen cheque at an ATM. A number of cheques and three cars were stolen from a dealership on Tecumseh Road West on April 16. Then, on April 27, Saumure was identified as the driver of a black SUV who allegedly attempted to run down two people on Grand Marais Road East.
It was reported to police that he then pointed a firearm at the persons as he fled the scene.
Just before 1am on Saturday, a Ford Focus was stolen from the same dealership and in the afternoon, the off-duty officer saw Saumure driving the stolen Focus on Dougall. Officers conducted a high risk vehicle stop at approximately 12:50pm.
Saumure is charged with 19 offences from the two investigations, including four counts each of theft of motor vehicle and possession of stolen property and two counts each of dangerous driving and pointing a firearm.
Windsor Police are continuing to investigate. No firearm has yet been found.
