UPDATE ENDS

—————————————————————————————————————————————

Three people are now in the custody of the Lloydminster RCMP following a car chase in the Border City.

According to Corporal Kelly Sikorski, the chase began around 8:30 p.m. when a darkly coloured Pontiac Torrent fled from police in the parking lot of the Lloyd Mall. The vehicle had encountered a patrol cruiser of the Crime Reduction Unit, which had been on routine patrols in the area.

As the vehicle made its way out of the lot at high speeds, it almost hit two pedestrians.

Atr that time, police engaged to stop the vehicle that was driving in an unsafe manner,” said Sikorski.

“It refused to stop.”

The chase then led north through Lloydminster, during which officers of the Onion Lake RCMP were brought in to handle a pursuit if the vehicle tried to head north. This did not occur, as the chase progressed down into the southeast end of the city before coming to a close.

“Through the process of the driving, we were able to get a spike belt in front of it and spike the two front tires, which significantly slowed the vehicle down,” said Sikorski.

“It went into a residential area, trying to creep through back alleys. At that point, just to end this ordeal, we used two police vehicles and pinned it in, stopping the vehicle.”

After the vehicle was pinned by police, two male occupants attempted to flee the scene. One of the males ran into a member of the public, who held them in place until police arrived.

“The public helped us with the apprehension of two males that split, one was held down by the public until we could get there,” said Sikorski.

The man who had assisted in the capture spoke with 106.1 The Goat, though he did not wish to reveal his name.

“We saw the cops coming around the corner here, from Maggie Mays, and this car was driving with no tires, they were both popped out,” said the man.

The man had been out with another person taking dogs for a walk, and kept walking after initially seeing the chase go by. However, one of the suspects soon appeared in their area, after jumping a fence to escape police.

“Some lady yelled “that’s him that’s him,” so I just ran after him,” the man said.

“I caught up to him at the fence, pulled him down from the fence, and put him in a chokehold and told him not to move, the cops will be here right away.”

The location where the suspect vehicle was pinned was along 41 Street, between 49 Avenue and 48 Avenue. A shotgun was removed from the scene, and police said the three occupants of the vehicle are believed to have gang ties.
