Police arrest man in Stolen Vehicle

At approximately 2:45 p.m. on October 16th members of Halifax Regional Police noticed a vehicle that had previously been reported stolen in Pictou County heading inbound to Halifax on Old Sambro Road.  Patrol members attempted to conduct a traffic stop but the vehicle fled.  Officers lost sight of the vehicle and a short time later observed it on Randolph Street which is a cul de sac. Officers blocked the vehicle in and attempted to arrest the lone occupant but the driver repeatedly rammed the stolen car into two Police cars causing damage and then caused damage to nearby lawns by driving over them. Two officers suffered minor injuries. The suspect then fled again in the vehicle to the nearby 100 block of Towerview road where the vehicle became wedged between a building and a fence. Officers followed and arrested the 39 year-old male driver. The driver faces numerous charges and will appear in Halifax Provincial Court today. 

Anyone with information in relation to these incidents or video from the area is asked to call police at 902-490-5020. Anonymous tips can be sent to Crime Stoppers by calling toll-free 1-800-222-TIPS (8477), submitting a secure web tip at www.crimestoppers.ns.ca or by using the P3 Tips app.
