TUMBLER RIDGE, B.C. – Tumbler Ridge RCMP has released information about a manhunt reported on July 20th.
RCMP members located a vehicle reported to have been involved in the theft of wire and property from resource sites in the Dawson Creek area.
When police had attempted to stop the vehicle, it fled the area along a forest service road in the Tumbler Ridge area, where police boxed it in.
The suspects rammed a police vehicle, rendering the suspect vehicle inoperable. They then fled on foot into the bush, and the Police Dog Service (PDS) was called in to attend.
One of the suspects was located walking along the highway and was arrested without incident.
Two suspects remain at large; a man well known to police and a woman are believed to be involved in some thefts that have recently taken place. At this time, there is nothing to suggest that there is any danger to the public.
If anyone has any information about this incident, contact the Tumbler Ridge RCMP at 250-242-5252 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
