Halifax police use spike belt to stop stolen camper

Halifax Regional Police say they had to use a spike belt to stop a truck towing a stolen camper.

Police say they received a report that the vehicle had backed into a pole on Olivet Street around 9:30 p.m. Friday and left the area.

Officers tried to stop the vehicle in the area of Lacewood Drive and Titus Street, but the driver sped off, so officers broke off the traffic stop.

The vehicle was then spotted on Highway 103 outbound, but then did a U-turn and started inbound.

Police say they used a spike belt to stop the vehicle and the suspect was arrested.

A 38-year-old man is facing charges of theft, failing to stop at the scene of a collision, resisting arrest and dangerous driving.
