SJPF Arrest Male After Short Vehicle Chase

Tue August 14, 2012

On August 11, 2012 the Saint John Police Force received a call for service of a possible impaired driver, in the east side of the city.

Uniform members attended to the call and within a short period of time located the reported vehicle. When members attempted to conduct a vehicle/operator’s check of this suspected vehicle, the driver refused to stop for police. The operator of this vehicle, 18 year old male, was eventually taken into custody and arrested without further incident. He was charged with dangerous driving, failing to stop for police, taking vehicle without owner’s consent, hit and run, violating house arrest and violation of two other probation orders.

This 18 year old male will be appearing in court on August 13, 2012 to answer to the charges.
