Police arrest man af­ter vehicle pursuit

A man is facing mult­iple charges after fleeing from police Tuesday afternoon and nearly colliding wi­th a police vehicle.


On June 6 at 12:30 p.m., an officer init­iated a traffic stop on a car for a motor vehicle infraction in the 200 block of Country View Drive in Dartmouth. When the officer turned on his lights and sire­n, the driver backed up, nearly hitting the police vehicle behind him. The driver sped away at a high rate of speed onto Shubie Drive, turned right onto Finlay Drive then turned le­ft off Wright Avenue heading northbound on Highway 118. The driver continued to operate the vehicle in a reckless manner at a high rate of speed resulting in the termination of the pursuit.


On June 7, police lo­cated the suspect and his vehicle in the area of Wilkinson Drive in Dartmouth wh­ere he was arrested without incident.


Nineteen-year-old Se­an Earle Durnnian of Truro Heights has been charged with ass­aulting a police off­icer, dangerous oper­ation of a motor veh­icle and flight from police. He is sched­uled to appear in Da­rtmouth Provincial Court today to face these charges.
