Probationer who tried to steal luxury vehicle nabbed

A man on bail and on probation who tried to steal a car in a fake sale has been arrested. Thursday the victim met with a man in order to sell his 2018 Range Rover.  The two met in the area of Belyea Street and Nelson Street in Oakville at which time the suspect jumped into the driver’s seat and took off.  That led to a chase by Halton Police as it fled eastbound on the Queen Elizabeth Way near Mississauga Road.  Officers were not able to stop the vehicle and the driver made good on his escape.  However, the stolen vehicle was equipped with an aftermarket GPS device and was located a short time later at a Petro Canada parking lot in Mississauga.  Police watched the car and at approximately 7:45 pm the suspect was observed by police to exit the stolen vehicle.  He was arrested without incident.

Calvin Peacock (38) of no fixed address has been charged with a whole string of charges as well as failure to comply with a release order and parole violation. Police say he was carrying fentanyl and a concealed weapon. When they went through the car police found  fentanyl, a stolen licence plate, seven blank automobile master keys and a large hunting knife.

Peacock has been held in custody pending a bail hearing.

Anyone with information regarding this investigation is asked to contact the 2 District Criminal Investigations Bureau at 905-825-4777 ext. 2216.

Halton Police remind residents that there is a  Buy and Sell Exchange Zone which provides a safe environment to conduct sale transactions. Details about the Buy and Sell Exchange Zone as well as tips to protect yourself during a buy and sell exchange can be found here:
