Police say the suspect vehicle was covertly followed and officers were strategically positioned in front of the vehicle with tire deflation devices.

During the initial deployment, RCMP say the vehicle accelerated toward an officer, who repositioned from harm’s way.

The suspect vehicle did sustain a tire deflation and was followed to a second position where another tire deflation deployment occurred.

Eventually the suspect was located in a residential area north of Williams Lake.

He was then arrested following a brief foot chase.
