They say three suspects fled the scene on foot and one was located by a canine unit in a nearby park.
A 26-year-old Mississauga, Ont., man is charged with break and enter, flight from police, dangerous operation of a motor vehicle, failing to stop at the scene of an accident and possession of property obtained by crime.
