(Québec) Another police persuit in less than 24 hours took place in Quebec City. This time, a man fled the police Friday night.
At about 2:44 am on Saturday, Quebec City Police Service () officers received a call to indicate that a suspicious man was driving in the area of Saint-Louis Road in Sainte-Foy and was looking at vehicles Stationed, “says Pierre Fortin of the SPVQ.
The police intercepted the individual a few minutes later. During the usual checks, officers realized that the moped’s license plate had been reported stolen from the territory of the city. It was at this moment that the man fled.
“Since this is a moped, it was not a high-speed pursuit,” says Fortin. The fugitive traveled several kilometers in the upper town, but his race ended in the Limoilou area, near the White Birch factory, when he lost control of his craft. The man, 49 years old and originally from Beauport, tried to take off on foot. However, it was quickly mastered by the police.
He was detained for the rest of the night and is scheduled to appear on Saturday at the Quebec City Courthouse. The individual faces four counts of night intrusion, police flight, dangerous driving and vehicle stowage.
