PRESCOTT/BROCKVILLE – One of the two suspects in a pair of gas thefts in Grenville County last month has pleaded guilty in a Brockville, Ont. court.

Treasure Langevin of Augusta Township entered guilty pleas to several charges on Friday.

Court documents show Langevin, 19, entered pleas to two counts of theft under $5,000, one count of possession of property obtained by crime and three counts of breach of recognizance.

The balance of the ten charges she was facing were withdrawn at the request of the Crown.

Langevin will serve an intermittent jail sentence of 90 days and was given 36 days credit for time served awaiting her day in court.

Langevin’s co-accused, James Rush, will be in a Brockville court March 23, 2016 for a pre-trial hearing.

He is facing more serious charges including five counts of theft, two counts of fraud, and one count each of possession of property obtained by crime, dangerous driving, driving while disqualified, assaulting a police officer with a weapon and failing to stop at the scene of an accident.

Two gas stations – one in Kemptville and the Esso in Prescott – were the victims of gas thieves on Jan. 30 and Feb. 2.

A police cruiser and an officer were hit when the driver of a vehicle wanted in the thefts tried to elude authorities in Prescott on Feb. 2.

The officer was hurt slightly while the cruiser sustained some damage.
