A well-known offender is in custody following a police incident last Friday…

Police say on April 7 at around 8 pm, officers received a report of a suspicious pickup truck parked on the 10500 block of Hartman Road.

When an officer arrived on scene, the driver backed up and smashed into the police vehicle twice before fleeing on foot.

Police were able to positively identify the driver as a well-known violent offender and requested the assistance of the North District Emergency Response Team and a Police Dog Services team in locating him.

After an extended foot pursuit, officers located and arrested the suspect without further incident. He will remain in custody until his next court appearance.

Investigators determined the truck driven by the suspect had been stolen from the Prince George area back in December 2022. Investigators also located a loaded firearm inside the vehicle.

The officer involved in the initial incident was not injured when his vehicle was struck by the suspect.
