Man who fled police has been arrested for outstanding warrants

On July 1, 2022 at approximately 11:00 p.m. the Quesnel RCMP with assistance Police Dog Services and BC Highway Patrol based out of Quesnel and Prince George, located and arrested a 33-year-old man on outstanding warrants after he fled from police.

Police located the man driving in the Bouchie Lake area. The suspect fled from police in his vehicle. Member of the BC Highway Patrol attended and assisted the Quesnel RCMP with containment of the suspect. Police were able to deploy a spike belt and disable the vehicle. The suspect was able to make it to the residence of an associate where he abandoned his vehicle, was able to get to a second vehicle and attempted to flee again. A second spike belt was deployed, disabling the second vehicle as well. The suspect fled from the vehicle on foot into a wooded area. A Police Dog Services team conducted a dog track and the suspect was located and arrested. Police are recommending additional charges against the man.

A coordinated effort and great team work by members of the local RCMP, BC Highway Patrol and Police Dog Services led to the safe and successful arrest of the suspect, says Sgt. Clay Kronebusch.
