Halifax District RCMP has charged three youths following a vehicle crash in Lower Sackville.
On November 5, at approximately 1:30 a.m., a Halifax District RCMP officer travelling on Hwy. 101 observed a vehicle that had crashed into the cement barrier and was now facing the wrong direction. The officer stopped and activated his emergency lights and observed the occupants, three youths, flee the scene on foot.
Officers quickly learned that the Hyundai Accent had been stolen from the Sydney area. A search of the area, assisted by a HRP police service dog, then followed and led officers to a nearby apartment building on Old Sackville Rd. where the three youths were safely arrested.
The youths, of Sydney, did not suffer injuries as a result from the vehicle crash.
Two of the youths have been charged with Possession of Property Obtained by Crime and and Failure to Comply with a Release Order. While the third is facing charges of Possession of Property Obtained by Crime and Obstructing a Peace Office.
All three youths appeared in Halifax Youth Justice Court yesterday. Two were remanded into custody and will attend court at a later date. The third youth was released on conditions pending his next court appearance in Sydney Youth Justice Court.
