Prince George Man Facing Multiple Charges After Failing to Stop for Police
Prince Georg e, B.C. – A 25-year-old Prince George man is in police custody and facing charges after failing to stop for police.
Prince George RCMP Cpl. Craig Douglass says the incident occurred yesterday just before noon when officers attempted to stop a vehicle with no insurance and inactive license plates in an alley adjacent to Tamarack Street near 20th Avenue.
He says the driver ignored police and fled through a driveway, colliding with a parked utility trailer and a fence in the process. The vehicle was located moments later unoccupied in a parking lot on Upland Street.
Police Service dog ‘Dero’ was then deployed and helped locate the suspect where he was arrested without incident. The suspect had a knife, a small amount of meth and a loaded firearm magazine.
The suspect was also found to have a lifetime firearms prohibition and was on probation with conditions not to possess a controlled substance, not to possess a weapon and not to possess a knife.
In addition to that, Douglass says a license plate found in the vehicle was stolen off a vehicle parked in the 4100 bock of First Avenue on Sunday.
