Prince George, B.C.- RCMP in Prince George have  rounded up a man they have been looking for.

Yesterday morning,  police  spotted 73 year old Erwin Gerhard Engel  driving on Minchin Road, off Blackwater Road southwest of Prince George.

Police had been looking for Engel who was wanted for breaching  the conditions on his Conditional Sentence Order.

According to police, when they  tried to  pull over Engel’s vehicle,  he sped up and took off.  Police did not give  chase, but  a short time later, that same vehicle was spotted on a long driveway off Blackwater Road.

Police Service Dog ‘Baron’ was called upon to track Engel, and  Baron led officers  about 800 metres away from the vehicle  to where Engel was hiding.   Engel was arrested without incident.

In addition to the Arrest Warrant, Engel  is now facing charges of : 

  • Fail to Stop for Police
  • Dangerous Operation of a Motor Vehicle

 Engel’s Conditional Sentence Order had been revoked in  late June. He had been given a conditional sentence in February of this year  after pleading guilty  to a  number of charges, including forcible confinement, uttering threats  and careless use of a firearm.
