Vehicle pursuit leads to charges in Colchester County

Colchester District RCMP say a 44-year-old man is facing a number of charges after fleeing from police as they tried to stop the vehicle for speeding.

Police say the Kennetcook man quickly fled the scene in Green Oaks, but later left his truck and went into a wooded area.

He was arrested just before 1 p.m. Friday by an RCMP Police Dog team and is due in court on Monday.

RCMP say the man faces one count each of dangerous operation of a motor vehicle, flight from police, failure to comply with an undertaking, and numerous charges under the Motor Vehicle Act.
