PRINCE GEORGE, BC: A well-known male suspect is in custody following a stolen vehicle incident Friday at the noon hour…
Police say a 2010 Chevy pickup was stolen from a parking lot of a local business and was spotted in the College Heights area. Officers initiated surveillance and called for assistance from the Air 3 helicopter to help track the truck as it headed out of College Heights travelling north on Ospika.
The suspect driver then made his way aggressively along 15th Ave and Hwy 97 where he met up with plain clothes officers who attempted to block the suspect vehicle in on 15th Ave and Ewert Street. The suspect attempted to flee and crashed into a civilian vehicle and an unmarked police truck. Both the officer and civilian driver were treated for minor injuries.
A 34 year-old Prince George man was taken into custody and will be held for a judicial hearing. The accused is well-known to local police for property related offences.
The investigation is continuing. No name to be released until after a court date.
