The vehicle accelerated north bound on Foothills at a high rate of speed. A few minutes later the vehicle was located in a ditch on Chief Lake Road near Highway 97. Two males were observed running from the vehicle. One suspect was arrested immediately. A Police Dog Service Team attended and ‘Dero’ was deployed. The second suspect was tracked to the intersection of Highway 97 and Lehman Street, more than three kilometres away, where he was arrested without incident.
