A 24 year-old female faces charges in connection with fleeing from police in a stolen vehicle.
On Wednesday, November 3, 2021, at about 2:00 a.m. police observed a suspicious vehicle and checked the license plate; the car had been reported stolen. Officers got into a position to attempt a traffic stop and activated emergency lights and siren. The vehicle (Chrysler Sebring) stopped, but when the officers got out of their car, the suspect vehicle took off at a high rate of speed, southbound on Elphinstone Street. Police units followed the vehicle as it attempted to evade. It came to a stop on 1st Avenue near Arthur Street. The driver, a female, ran from the vehicle, disregarding police warnings to stop. A canine officer sent his dog after the suspect. The female was bitten on one arm by the police dog. After being treated in hospital, the suspect was brought to police headquarters and charged. A search of the vehicle found two machetes. The female was also wanted on warrants in addition to the charges arising from this incident.
