Mounties have one person in custody following an early morning stolen vehicle investigation.
Around 5:45 a.m., the Prince George RCMP received reports of a stolen vehicle in progress on the 700 block of 17th Avenue. Just 10 minutes later, the stolen Ford Tempo was spotted on the corner of 20th Avenue and Redwood Street and fled the area. Minutes later, the vehicle collided with a residential fence and almost struck a house on the corner of 20th Avenue and Hemlock Street.
The driver fled the vehicle on foot, but the Prince George RCMP’s Police Dog Service was able arrest the 19 year old suspect found hiding on the 1800 block of Gorse Street. The suspect will likely make a court appearance later Thursday.
