One person was arrested early this morning after crashing a stolen car.

Just after midnight on Thursday, Sept. 6 the Williams Lake RCMP responded to a motor vehicle incident on Coleman Road.

In a news release, police say a witness heard a loud crash and then observed the only occupant from a vehicle walk away from a disabled car. The car had struck two parked cars in the area.

The car turned out to be stolen and police say they suspect it to be involved in a break and enter that occurred to a business two days earlier.

Police arrived and arrested the driver for possession of stolen property.

The driver is well known to the RCMP for property offences, including break and enters and stolen cars.

The investigation is continuing and the RCMP will be recommending a number of criminal charges to Crown Counsel.
