Police search for man who ditched a stolen truck in Pictou County

RCMP are asking for the public's help to find a man who ditched a stolen vehicle and fled from police in Pictou County.

Police responded to a suspicious incident in the Three Brooks area involving a man running through the woods around 10:30 p.m. Tuesday, but didn't find him.

RCMP then received a call about a stolen truck in the same area just before midnight, and located it a short time later.

Officers attempted a traffic stop, but the driver pulled over and fled into the woods, and he couldn't be located despite help from RCMP Police Dog Services.

The suspect is described as a white man, wearing dark pants with a red stripe down the side, and a short sleeve blue top with the word "SECURITY".
