On November 1, 2022, at approximately 8:40 am, police observed a stolen red Dodge Caravan in the downtown area. The vehicle was observed travelling the wrong way on both Rosser Ave and Princess Ave. Shortly after this, police were in a position to implement a stop stick to deflate the suspect vehicle tires when the vehicle eventually travelled east bound on Pacific Ave.
Once the vehicle drove over the stop stick and the tires were deflating, officers were then in a position to follow it as it turned south on 1st street where it eventually came to a stop near the corner of 1st street and Maryland Ave as one of the tires had completely come off the rim.
Four individuals were arrested from the stolen vehicle just prior to 9:00 am.
The driver, a 22-year-old male was lodged at Brandon Police Service. He will appear in court today on charges of Assault Peace Officer with a Weapon, Dangerous Driving X2, Flight From Police and Possession of Property Obtained by Crime.
A 45-year-old male passenger was also lodged at Brandon Police Service. He will appear in court today on charges of Possession of Property Obtained by Crime and Fail to comply with Probation.
Two female passengers were also arrested and later released. The 24-year-old and the 36-year-old will each appear in court in December on charges of Possession of Property Obtained by Crime.
