Motor Vehicle Pursuit

At 11:55 p.m. Friday, police initiated a vehicle stop in the downtown area after a driver cut off another car. The driver refused to stop and police followed the vehicle through several downtown streets at 50 kmh. The vehicle left the downtown area and police lost sight of it in the east end of the city. A few minutes later, police again observed the suspect vehicle in the downtown area, and the driver again refused to stop for police. Officers terminated the pursuit when the speed reached 80 kmh. The vehicle was last seen in the area of Whillier Drive. Officers flooded the area and located two persons walking not far from where the suspect vehicle was found empty. One of the people, a 44-year-old male from Brandon, was identified as the suspect. He was arrested and released after processing at BPS. The suspect will appear in court in February and is charged with dangerous driving, flight from police, resist arrest, and possession of meth for the purpose of trafficking.
