Two Quebec residents are facing charges after Ontario Provincial Police responded to two crashes involving stolen vehicles in Lanark County, west of Ottawa.

Ontario Provincial Police say during the investigation into the two collisions, officers learned the two vehicles had been reported stolen.

The two suspects were arrested near the second collision scene, police said.

An 18-year-old male and a 15-year-old, both from Montreal, are facing charges of dangerous operation of a motor vehicle, possession of property obtained by crime over $5,000, obstructing a peace officer and possessing an automobile master key.

The 15-year-old is also facing a charge of driving without a license under the Highway Traffic Act.
