On March 8 at approximately 9:30 a.m., Chester RCMP received a call that a truck had driven through a wall at a Tim Hortons restaurant. The wall sustained significant damage but no one was injured, according to a RCMP news release.

The driver fled the scene in a dangerous manner at a high speed. An investigation led to a second vehicle being stopped a short time later in East Chester and three men being arrested.
