Saskatchewan man arrested in BC after fleeing Banff traffic stop
The Banff RCMP got their man, thanks to BC Mounties.
RCMP officers in Revelstoke, Sicamous and Southeast District Traffic Services were able to safely apprehend a driver of a vehicle after the man failed to stop for RCMP in the Banff area.
The apprehension happened at 9:15 p.m. Wednesday after it was reported a motorist fled a traffic stop in the Banff area earlier in the day.
Salmon Arm RCMP subsequently took the 57-year-old male from Saskatchewan into custody with the help of the Police Dog Service unit after the man ditched his vehicle on a logging road near Canoe, east of Salmon Arm.
The male driver remains in custody while police continue the investigation into the reasons as to why the man caused a multi jurisdictional pursuit.
