Extensive patrols were made throughout the community. At approximately 9:15 AM, officers located the stolen vehicle being driven from a residence on Nation Crescent in Prince George.

The suspect exited the truck and attempted to flee on foot, however he was arrested a short distance later. One officer received treatment from paramedics for minor injuries.
