Truck thief continues to elude police

The Mounties are continuing their search for a man involved in a police chase on Thursday.

Cpl. Mike Richard says the Dawson Creek RCMP detachment responded to a report of a stolen vehicle in the Groundbirch area at around lunch-time on Thursday. He says the suspect is believed to be the same man who had stolen a vehicle and was ‘causing some trouble’ in Chetwynd earlier in the day.

Richard says the suspect managed to elude police in a foot pursuit, before stealing a vehicle in Groundbirch.

The stolen vehicle, an older-model silver and green GMC pickup, was soon spotted on Highway 52, but the driver again refused to stop for police. After attempting several times to immobilize the vehicle, including using spike strips, police called off the chase because it was nearing the City of Dawson Creek.

The stolen vehicle was later found abandoned in Dawson Creek, and the suspect remains at large.

Richard says the suspect is a Caucasian male, possibly in his 20’s, approximately 5’9”, with short brown hair. He also may have facial injuries consistent with a car accident, and also lower body injuries sustained in the foot pursuit through the brush.
