Car Found, Suspect Not after Incident in Summerland

Summerland RCMP were called early Thursday morning, after reports of a person with a flashlight walking in yards around the Garnet Valley Road area. 

Police say when they arrived on scene around 4:30 in the morning, they found a lone vehicle, however, when they turned on their emergency lights, the car took off. 

For safety concerns, the police did not pursue the car, but they did do a search of the road and nearby driveways, finding  a fence had been damaged after apparently being struck by the car.

The vehicle was eventually found, although the driver was not.

The RCMP have held that car as the investigation continues.
