On November 23, 2021, shortly after 10:00 pm, police responded to a report of the theft of a vehicle, which was left running and unattended in the 1300 block of Rosser Ave.  Police located the vehicle being driven a short time later in the area of Victoria Ave E.

Police attempted to stop the vehicle; however, the driver would not stop, drove through several stop signs and made several turns to evade police. No pursuit was initiated.  The vehicle was located abandoned in the 600 block of Rideau Street prompting police K-9 to initiate a track, which lead police directly to where the suspect was hiding a short distance away.

Police arrested the 21-year-old female suspect who was lodged at Brandon Police Service.  She will appear in court today on charges of Theft of Vehicle, Dangerous Operation of a Motor Vehicle, Flight from Police, Possession of a Weapon, and Fail to Comply with Release Order.
