At 11:00 p.m. last evening, Halifax District RCMP attempted to conduct a traffic stop on Sackville Dr. in Middle Sackville. The vehicle, a 2014 Chevrolet Cruze, had been reported stolen earlier in the day from Dartmouth.

The member suffered minor injuries and did not require medical attention. The vehicle was located a short time later after the driver lost control and entered a ditch on Bruce Dr. in Lower Sackville.
