Stolen vehicle flees police

A stolen vehicle crashed after fleeing a police roadblock in Penticton Saturday night.

The roadblock was one of many around the city overnight Dec. 1, according to Penticton RCMP.

Shortly after midnight, a vehicle fled a roadblock on Carder Rd. off of Lower Bench Rd., eventually crashing into a front yard of a home a considerable distance from the check stop.

“The vehicle was determined to be stolen and the suspect is still at large,” said Cpl. Ted Manchulenko.

Penticton RCMP conducted a thorough search of the area to determine if there were injuries to any occupants of the vehicle or if the suspect was in the area, but were unable to locate anyone.

The vehicle was previously stolen from the Apex area. The incident remains under investigation.
