RCMP seek witnesses to police car chase

Police are looking for people who saw RCMP chase a stolen vehicle through Cranbrook on Tuesday, Oct. 2.

Cranbrook RCMP want to know if you saw a police car chase on Tuesday, Oct. 2.

The incident started with an alleged car jacking between Creston and Yahk, for which 26-year-old Port Coquitlam resident Nicholas Bullock has been charged.

Bullock is accused of stopping a driver on the highway near Goatfell on Oct.2, accompanied by a 17-year-old girl, also from Port Coquitlam. After the pair got into the vehicle, Bullock is alleged to have assaulted the driver and stolen the SUV.

At around 10: 30 p.m. October 2, an RCMP officer spotted the stolen vehicle on the southern outskirts of Cranbrook. When the driver refused to stop, the officer pursued the vehicle along the strip, before the driver turned right at Victoria Avenue. The pursuit ended in a private driveway near 13th Street South.

In the incident that followed, the RCMP officer discharged his service pistol. Bullock was taken to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries and has since been discharged. He remains in custody pending criminal court appearances. The incident is being investigated by the Independent Investigations Office of B.C.

Now, Cranbrook RCMP’s General Investigation Section wants to know if anyone saw the allegedly stolen vehicle on its route on October 2, either between Yahk and Cranbrook, or during the pursuit through Cranbrook.

The vehicle Bullock is alleged to have stolen is a gold-coloured 2006 Toyota 4Runner SUV with the Alberta license plate BFH5351.

If you remember seeing the vehicle on Tuesday, October 2, please contact Cranbrook RCMP at 250-489-3471 or Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS. You can also leave a webtip: Google Cranbrook Crimestoppers.
