Just after closing at the Overlander Pub, suspects broke into the beer and wine store and stole a quantity of liquor. Witnesses provided a description of a vehicle that was possibly used during the commission of this offence. The Williams Lake RCMP immediately located the possible suspect vehicle and upon making efforts to stop it, the vehicle fled.
A pursuit was not initiated due to the dangerous speeds and manner in which the suspect vehicle was being driven. Moments later, the suspect vehicle was located near the Dairy Fields off of Midnight Drive. In efforts to evade police, the suspect vehicle rammed one of the police cars and then attempted to hit a police officer who was out on foot.
The vehicle then again fled. At approximately 4:00am, the Alexis Creek RCMP located the suspect vehicle at a road check on Hwy 20 west of Williams Lake. After a lengthy pursuit north of Hwy 20 on several forestry service roads, a spike belt was deployed successfully which disabled the vehicle.
One occupant was immediately apprehended while the other remains at large. A search is presently underway to locate the second suspect. The suspect vehicle is believed to be stolen from Williams Lake. The male suspect in custody is known to police and it is anticipated that he will held for a court appearance for related criminal charges in relation to this incident.
An update further to this will be provided when more information is known.
