For the second time in a year, police in Williams Lake were able to stop robbery suspects fleeing Quesnel.
This time the drama unfolded at the Chemo RV dealership in Quesnel at around 6:30 a.m. Wednesday, with two suspects making off with items stolen from a trailer unit.
Staff Sgt. Del Byron said immediately following the robbery Williams Lake officers received a description of the suspect vehicle, an older model white Dodge diesel, and headed north on Highway 97 to intercept.
“Our officers became engaged with a suspect vehicle,” Byron said, adding the suspects sped off and eventually ended up in a residential area of the city.
As the matter is still being actively investigated, Byron said he would not release further details of the incident.
He noted, however, that police were able to recover the vehicle and have seized it for further investigation. Police also recovered the stolen items inside the truck.
The two suspects involved in the crime fled the scene and escaped into the Dairy Fields off of 12th Avenue North, however, police are continuing their efforts in the investigation and are asking anyone with information regarding the incident to contact the detachment at 250-392-6211 or CrimeStoppers.
On March 28, a crime spree suspect fleeing Quesnel was taken down by police in dramatic fashion along Highway 97 near 11th Avenue. That suspect was arrested and charged.
