Driver of a black vehicle arrested
The Detective and Traffic Departments are investigating a case in which a male suspect, who was driving a black vehicle with license plate 4081 AAC, was arrested after police ordered him to stop his vehicle. The incident took place on Monday, August 15, at 12:30am at the causeway bridge.
The vehicle in question was seen by a police patrol driving on Airport Road in the direction of Cole Bay, and was ordered to stop for control because of the heavily tinted windows. The driver refused to stop, and increased speed in the direction of the causeway bridge. Another patrol was called in to assist in order to stop this vehicle.
A road block was set up at the causeway bridge by one of the patrols, however, the driver of this vehicle could not stop the vehicle, and collided with the police vehicle causing quite some damage. No one was injured.
Police searched inside the vehicle because of the strong scent of marijuana coming from the vehicle. During the search, two firearms were found and confiscated. The suspect was arrested on the scene and taken to the Philipsburg Police Station where the suspect remains in custody for further investigation. (See pic attached)
