Fredericton police look for occupants of vehicle after early morning crash

Police in Fredericton are looking for the occupants of a vehicle involved in a single-vehicle crash early Monday morning.

Sgt. Dave MacLean says a vehicle hit a building on the city's south side and rolled over shortly after 4 a.m.

"Police arrived at scene within minutes however the occupants fled on foot prior to police arrival," MacLean said in an email to our newsroom Monday morning.

Police did not provide any other details, such as where the crash happened, but said the incident is still under investigation.

Officers are also investigating a break and enter on the city's north side, which MacLean said happened shortly after 2 a.m. on New Brunswick Day.

No other details about the break-in have been released and the matter is still under investigation.

MacLean said officers also responded to a report of an unwanted person on the south side shortly after 8 p.m. Sunday.

"Police arrested an adult male pursuant to 55(1) Immigration and Refugee Protection Act," MacLean said. "This male will appear before the Canadian Border Service Agency early next week."

Section 55(1) of the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act says an officer "may issue a warrant for the arrest and detention of a permanent resident or a foreign national who the officer has reasonable grounds to believe is inadmissible and is a danger to the public or is unlikely to appear for examination, for an admissibility hearing, for removal from Canada or at a proceeding that could lead to the making of a removal order."

Officers responded to a total of 29 calls between Sunday evening and early Monday morning, said MacLean.
