Oshawa man caught fleeing from police charged with 17 LCBO + two convenience store robberies

On the same day Durham Police charged a woman with four LCBO thefts from last October, investigators have charged a man caught fleeing police with 17 LCBO thefts and two convenience store robberies from last month.

Central East Division officers tried to stop a suspected impaired driver Tuesday night near Ritson Road and Dean Avenue in Oshawa but the driver fled. The vehicle was later located on Simcoe Street and the driver arrested.

Further investigation resulted in impaired driving charges, 17 charges for LCBO thefts that occurred in Durham Region and two convenience store robberies from February 19 in Oshawa.

Brad Faul, 39, of Oshawa, is charged with Impaired Operation of a vehicle; Dangerous Operation of a vehicle; Flight from Police Officer; Failure or Refusal to Comply with a Breath Demand; 17 counts of Theft Under $5,000; two counts of Robbery and Disguise with Intent.

He was held for a bail hearing.


The same day near Taunton Road and Northbrook Street in the city’s north end police were again looking for a drunk driver and when officers arrived on the scene they found a stolen blue Kia in the midst of fleeing a fail-to-remain collision. The two occupants, a man and a woman, ran from the car on foot but were later caught and arrested.

Police would eventually charge the charge the woman with four separate thefts from LCBO locations in Oshawa back from October 2021, in addition to the driving offences.
