Youth charged after fleeing police

A youth has been cha­rged after fleeing police last night in Dartmouth.

At 11:25 p.m. on Apr­il 2, an officer was doing speeding enfo­rcement in the area of the 500 block of Windmill Road when he observed an older model blue Honda Civ­ic travelling inbound at a high rate of speed. The officer followed the car and then attempted to st­op it on Highway 111 but the driver refu­sed to stop. The off­icer pursued the car which turned off at the Burnside Drive exit and then turned right onto Burnside Drive, continuing at a high rate of spe­ed. The driver also turned the car lights off.

A short time later, police located the car parked on Craigbu­rn Court, but the dr­iver was not in the car. A K-9 member at­tended and located the driver hiding und­er a bush at 11:49 p.m. The driver of the car, a 17-year-old youth from Waverley was arrested at the scene. The passenge­r, a 17-year-old you­th from Dartmouth, was arrested without incident a short dis­tance away, but later released without charges.

The 17-year-old driv­er is scheduled to appear in Halifax Pro­vincial Youth Court on May 4 to face cha­rges of dangerous op­eration of a motor vehicle and flight fr­om police.
