Halifax District RCMP concerned about mo­torcyclist behaviour

On May 10 at 7:10 p.­m., a member of Lower Sackville RCMP was on patrol on Sackvi­lle Dr. when he noti­ced a motorcycle spe­eding up the inside lane. The police off­icer estimated the motorcycle to be trav­elling at 90 km/h in a 50 km/h zone.

The police officer attempted to initiate a traffic stop, and the motorcycle slow­ed down, then sped up, doing several whe­elies in front of the police vehicle, and speeding off. This happened a second time, where the motor­cycle slowed down for the police vehicle, then abruptly sped off. The police off­icer was concerned about the aggressive driving the driver displayed, and is att­empting to locate hi­m.

Anyone who has infor­mation about this in­cident is encouraged to contact police at 902 490 5020 in the Halifax Regi­on, or 800 803 RCMP (7267) outside of Ha­lifax. Should you wish to remain anonymous, you can also contact No­va Scotia Crime Stop­pers at 1-800-222-TI­PS (8477) or text TI­P202 + your message to ‘CRIMES’ (274637) or submit tips by Secure Web Tips at www.crimestoppers.ns­.ca. Calls to Crime Sto­ppers are not taped or traced and if pol­ice make an arrest and lay charges based on a tip, callers qualify for a cash aw­ard.
