At 9 p.m. on Friday, January 17, officers assigned to the Halifax Regional Police Quick Response Unit attended an address in the 100 block of Tacoma Dr. looking for a woman who was wanted for arrest. As they approached the address, they noted a vehicle in the driveway with a male driver and a woman in the passenger seat. When the officers approached the vehicle and identified themselves, the driver quickly reversed the vehicle out of the driveway, nearly striking one of the officers and then speeding away. A few minutes later the vehicle was found abandoned behind Sobeys on Tacoma Dr. The woman, who is 50 years of age, was located and arrested in the immediate area. The HRP K-9 unit attended the scene and conducted a track, which led to the arrest of the male driver. The woman has been released without charges as she was not the woman whom they were originally seeking for the arrest warrant. The man, 52 years of age, is currently in police custody and will appear in Dartmouth Provincial Court on Monday, January 20 to face a variety of charges including assaulting police, evading police and violation of court orders.
