Saskatoon Police were involved in two incidents early this morning in which stolen vehicles refused to stop for officers and were being driven in a dangerous manner.
The first incident occurred at approximately 2:00 a.m., December 12, 2016. A Patrol Officer was in the area of 32nd Street West and Avenue J North when he noticed a white Ford F 250 bearing a license plate that did not match the vehicle. The officer attempted a traffic stop, however the driver refused and evaded police, traveling eastbound on 33rd Street. A tire deflation device was deployed by another officer at Avenue D however it was not successful. The vehicle continued onto 2nd Avenue southbound at which time officers discontinued their efforts to stop the vehicle. It was located a few minutes later in an alley behind Spadina Crescent, where it had collided with a tree. The suspect has not been located. The vehicle had been reported stolen from Saskatoon.
At approximately 5:15 a.m., December 12, 2016, Police received reports that a black Ford F350 was being driven in a dangerous manner at 51st Street near Wanuskewin Drive, eastbound. The vehicle was reportedly disobeying red lights and traveling the wrong direction on Circle Drive before leaving city limits. The vehicle was later located north of Saskatoon. It had been reported stolen from Kerrobert, Saskatchewan. Corman Park Police and the RCMP are now investigating. The suspect is described as a Caucasian male, approximately 25 years old, wearing a grey hoodie.
