At approximately 10:30 p.m., patrol officers arrested a 21-year-old Bedford man in the 6100 block of Almon Street in connection with this incident.
He is currently in custody and will appear in Halifax Provincial Court tomorrow to face charges of dangerous driving, fleeing police, possession of stolen property (x2), breach of probation (x2) and breach of a driving prohibition.
At 10:40 p.m. an officer observed a vehicle travelling above the speed limit inbound on Bayers Road.
The officer caught up to the vehicle at a red light, queried the plate and learned that it was reported stolen. The officer attempted to conduct a traffic stop but the driver of the vehicle refused to stop and took off heading back outbound on Bayers Road.
The vehicle was pursued out the Bi-Hi until it exited at Duke Street in Bedford. When the vehicle reached Rocky Lake Drive the pursuit was discontinued.
The vehicle was located unoccupied on Birch Street in Bedford and a search of the area could not locate the driver. Investigators were able to identify him and charges are expected once he is located and arrested.
