OTTAWA/PRESCOTT – The second suspect in a pair of gas thefts in Grenville County has been given a 30 day jail sentence.

James Rush, 30, of North Grenville was sentenced in an Ottawa courtroom Monday (Oct. 31).

According to court documents, Rush was given concurrent sentences of 30 days and concurrent probation sentences of two years.

Rush had been facing 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.

He also has to pay a $100 Victim Fine Surcharge, payable within five years.

Rush’s co-accused, Treasure Langevin, 19, of Augusta Township was sentenced in March in Brockville. She was given an intermittent jail sentence of 90 days with 36 days credit for time served.

Rush and Langevin were involved in two thefts at gas stations in Kemptville and Prescott in late January and early February.

A police cruiser and an officer were hit in Prescott as the pair tried to elude authorities.
