Man in stolen car rams multiple vehicles, evades police in high speed chase

Lunenburg District RCMP has charged a man in a dangerous driving incident in Lunenburg County.

On September 28, 2023, at approximately 4:50 p.m., Lunenburg District RCMP responded to a report of a driving complaint on Hwy. 103 in Chester. RCMP officers learned that a Dodge Avenger was observed driving erratically on Hwy. 103 and had rammed a vehicle from behind. The Avenger continued travelling east on Hwy. 103 and had rammed a second vehicle and was trying to pass on the inside shoulder of the road.

Lunenburg District RCMP requested assistance from Halifax District RCMP, who located the vehicle on Hwy. 103 in Upper Tantallon, travelling at a high rate of speed. A traffic stop was attempted, which resulted in the vehicle ramming a police car before it came to a stop. The driver of the vehicle, a 33-year-old Halifax man, was safely arrested. The man initially refused to identify himself and officers observed that he was displaying signs of impairment. The man was given the ASD demand and he refused to provide a sample. The man was subsequently transported to the Bridgewater Rural Detachment and held in custody.

RCMP officers later learned that the Dodge Avenger had been stolen from the Pinehurst area of Lunenburg County earlier in the day.

Scott David Creamer, 33, of Halifax, has been charged with Assault with a Weapon (3 counts), Dangerous Operation of a Conveyance (4 counts), Failure to Stop at the Scene of an Accident (3 counts), Flight from Police, Refusal of a Lawful Demand, Obstruction of a Peace Officer, Theft of a Motor Vehicle and Possession of Stolen Property. Creamer will appear in Bridgewater Provincial Court later today.
