BROCKVILLE – City police are looking for the culprit or culprits who stole a taxi and took it on a joyride overnight Saturday.

Police received a stolen vehicle complaint after someone took off with a four-door blue Buick Allure Executive Taxi.

The vehicle has since been recovered but it was trashed.

“The car was rendered inoperable as it received enough damage that it had to be towed away,” Const. Steve Rogers told Brockville Newswatch.

Police are now asking for the public to see if anyone saw the taxi being driven “in a reckless manner” on Blockhouse Island early Sunday morning.

If you saw the taxi call Const. Dustin Gamble at 613-342-0127 extension 6087.
