On March 14th at 10:40 am Police attempted to stop a truck for a traffic violation in the 100 block of McTavish Avenue. The vehicle was followed for a few blocks with emergency equipment activated but the vehicle did not stop for police and fled the area. It was determined to be unsafe to pursue the vehicle. No excessive speeds were reached. A brief time later police located the vehicle abandoned in the ditch on 17th street east. Police followed the footsteps from the vehicle and located the 24-year-old male driver. He did not want to stop for police as he did not have a valid driver’s license. He will now face a criminal charge of flight from police and will appear in court on May 27th, 2024.
