Updated: Aug 8

On Sunday, August 8, 2022, at approximately 11:00 AM, Troopers assigned to Troop C, were investigating a report of a stolen vehicle, which had occurred at approximately 12:45 AM, in the Town of Willington. While at a residence on Ashford Center Road, in the Town of Ashford, Troopers observed the stolen white Ford Mustang, traveling westbound on Ashford Center Road (RT 44). Troopers recognized the operator of the Mustang as Jacob Cormier (DOB: 06/16/2001), of Willington. The vehicle drove off at a high rate of speed and Troopers lost sight of the vehicle. As Troopers attempted to locate the vehicle in the surrounding area, Troop C received several 9-1-1 calls reporting that a white Ford Mustang had been involved in a collision on Storrs Road, in the Town of Mansfield, and that the operator had fled the scene. Responding Troopers learned that the white Mustang had struck two mailboxes on Storrs Road, causing property damage. A perimeter was established and a K9 track was conducted. Cormier was located in Mansfield Hollow State Park, but engaged Troopers in a foot pursuit and fled into Mansfield Hollow Lake. Shortly after, Cormier swam to shore and was taken into custody without incident. Cormier was transported to Troop C, where he was processed and charged with the following violations:

C.G.S. 14-224(b)(3) Evading Responsibility Resulting in Property Damage,

C.G.S. 14-223(b) Increasing Speed in an Attempt to Escape or Elude Officer
