RCMP, with the help of a dog team, did locate the driver who is known to police and now faces charges of flight from police and dangerous driving.
Later on , Mounties witnessed another car speeding north of Marysville.
The driver ran from the vehicle into a wooded after officers tried to pull them over.
A small amount of drugs and paraphernalia were found in the vehicle which was seized.
The driver turned himself in Monday afternoon and is facing multiple charges including excessive speed.
Kimberley RCMP also observed a truck driving erratically on Ross St. earlier that morning.
A traffic stop was done just after 2AM Saturday and officers noted the driver of the truck had signs of being drunk.
The truck was impounded and the driver’s license was suspended for three days.
Also, around 1:30PM Saturday, police received a report of a vehicle driving on the Northstar Rails to Trails in Marysville, which is prohibited under municipal bylaws.
