Two people are facing charges after fleeing from Williams Lake RCMP and subsequently getting caught in Quesnel.
Just after 7 a.m. Saturday, Quesnel RCMP located a vehicle that had fled from the Williams Lake RCMP the day before.
The vehicle, a Grey Honda Accord, was seen in Quesnel on Highway 97 coming down Dragon Lake Hill. When police attempted to stop the vehicle, the vehicle fled a high rate of speed. In the interest of public safety, police did not pursue the vehicle.
The vehicle was soon spotted heading down a dead end road. Officers set up a spike belt and were successful in stopping the vehicle. The vehicle collided with a cement curb, rolled backwards striking a police vehicle. No one was injured as a result of this.
The male driver fled from the vehicle, carrying a
duffle bag and was located by a police service dog a short time later. Police recovered property in the bag believed to be stolen. A female passenger was arrested at the scene without incident. Both were released on a promise to appear for a future court date. The investigation is ongoing.
If you have any information on this, you are asked to call the Quesnel RCMP at 250 992-9211 or Crime Stoppers at 1 800 222-8477.
