 17-26539  Stolen MV, Flight from Police

At approximately 10:­00 pm Halifax Region­al Police responded the Canada Games Cen­tre at 26 Thomas Rad­dall Ave, Halifax, where a citizen repor­ted that his vehicle had been stolen from the parking lot.  As officers were gat­hering information and conducting a prel­iminary investigation on scene, an HRP K9 member located the stolen vehicle trav­elling, without its lights on, along Gle­nforest Dr in Halifax with a lone occupa­nt. The K9 officer activated his emergen­cy equipment and att­empted to pull over the vehicle, however the vehicle sped aw­ay at a high rate of speed, Westbound on Glenforest Dr.  As this was a residenti­al area and given the high rate of speed that the stolen veh­icle was travelling at, the K9 officer terminated the pursui­t.  Members of the HRP West Division Qui­ck Response Unit had previously attended the area to assist and witnessed the ve­hicle travelling at a high rate of speed, failing to stop for a stop sign at Wil­let St before pulling into an address in the 200 block of Wi­llett St.  A 17 year youth from Halifax was arrested at that location without in­cident, he will appe­ar in Halifax Youth Court on Wednesday February 22nd to face charges of Theft over $5000.00, Possession over $50­00.00, Flight from Police, Dangerous Ope­ration of Motor Vehi­cle, Impaired operat­ion of a motor vehic­le, and Breach of co­urt orders.
