RCMP say a police dog services member from Prince George observed a vehicle driving erratically on Highway 97 on Friday, potentially putting other motorists in danger.

Police say they learned that the vehicle, a Ford F-350, was stolen.

Road blocks were then set up at two locations with a spike belt deployed at each.

The suspect driver failed to stop at both, but all four tires were punctured.

Police say the suspect vehicle was eventually stopped when it came into contact with a police vehicle.

RCMP say three occupants then fled the scene on foot but were quickly apprehended.
