OPP make arrest in police pursuit case
On Monday Bracebridge OPP started an investigation into a series of threats made by Thomas Lustvee of Bracebridge, who had earlier that same day been involved in a suspect apprehension pursuit in the Aurora area. Lustvee was located driving on Highway 11 in Gravenhurst at approximately 3:45 p.m. that same afternoon and ultimately police engaged him in his second suspect apprehension pursuit that day, near Simcoe Road 169 in Washago.

The 58 year-old has been charged with:
- Uttering Threats to Cause Death or Bodily Harm
