Police in Prince George arrested a dangerous driver whose journey spanned across two cities on Sunday.

Shortly after 5 p.m., September 26, Vanderhoof RCMP notified police in Prince George of a dangerous driver who was last seen heading east out of Vanderhoof area at a high rate of speed. Officers learned the driver was traveling at excessive speeds and collided with another vehicle without stopping while driving through Vanderhoof.

Members from several units in Prince George, including frontline, municipal traffic and police dog services, set up roadblocks in the Beaverly area to stop the driver.

The vehicle was located not far from where the spike belt was used and, with the assistance of a police service dog, the driver was located and arrested,” said Cpl. Jennifer Cooper, Media Relations Officer for the Prince George RCMP.
