Salmon Arm  

Can run, but can't hide

He ran, but he couldn't hide from the long arm of the law.

Salmon Arm RCMP have arrested a man wanted on several warrants after he fled from police twice.

Staff Sgt. Scott West said police attempted to pull over a vehicle in the Shuswap community only to have the driver flee from police on two occasions.

“The vehicle was finally located in the Notch Hill area where it had gone into a ditch on snow-covered roads. It was obvious that two persons fled from the vehicle and the tracks were followed with RCMP officers and a police dog unit. After a lengthy track with the police dog, a male was located attempting to hide from police,” said West.

“The male who is not known to be from Salmon Arm had warrants for his arrest from Kamloops, Merritt, and Vancouver. The arrest warrants were for obstructing a police officer, fail to comply with recognizance, assault police officer, possession of stolen property over $5000 and obstruction of a police officer.”

A female was arrested near the scene but was later released. The Salmon Arm RCMP continue their investigation into items located in the vehicle.
