Police arrest and charge teenager with dangerous driving and multiple other criminal offences

Release Date: January 24, 2024



On December 20, 2023, at approximately 10:25 p.m. patrol officers, who were driving in the area of McCauley Street and Montreal Street, observed a motor vehicle that was committing a Highway Traffic Act infraction. Further investigation revealed that the affixed rear licence plate was identified as being stolen.


Police attempted to pull the vehicle over while activating their emergency lights and sirens however the vehicle failed to stop and, while travelling at a high rate of speed and failing to stop for two stop signs, nearly struck a pedestrian at the intersection of Drennan Street and Wiley Street. The vehicle was last seen by police travelling at a high rate of speed westbound on John Counter Boulevard.


On December 21, 2023, at approximately 6:20 a.m. while patrolling the area of Old Mill Road police located the vehicle sitting abandoned with its daytime running lights on. Although this motor vehicle had not been reported as stolen by its original owner, the stolen licence plates were still affixed to the rear of the vehicle.


Further investigation by these diligent patrol officers revealed that the owner of the vehicle had recently sold it to the accused. Police were able to identify the accused through the individual who had arranged the purchase. It was also discovered that the accused was currently on court-imposed conditions to remain away from the individual who had arranged the purchase with the original owner. Both had attended together to pick up the vehicle on the date of purchase.


On January 5, 2024, at approximately 8:50 p.m. police observed a black BMW failing to stop for a stop sign in the area of Pine Street and Cherry Street. Police pulled the vehicle over and due to the passenger not wearing their seatbelt, they too were asked for their name. Through further investigation it was revealed that the passenger had provided a false name to the officers and when their actual identity was revealed they once again attempted to flee. This time however, police arrested the accused who was subsequently transported to police headquarters where they were held to attend a bail hearing the following day.


A 19-year-old local individual was charged with dangerous operation of a conveyance, failing to stop for police, obstructing a peace officer, possession of property obtained by crime under $5000, and failing to comply with an undertaking.
