On August 29, 2018 at approximately 5:40 PM Grande Prairie RCMP conducted a traffic stop in the area of 97a Street and 100 Avenue. The female driver was wanted on criminal warrants. Officers placed her under arrest however she broke free and jumped back into her vehicle. She sped off at a high rate of speed while officers were still holding on to the doors of the jeep.
The suspect was located around 6:00 PM driving in the area of 68 Avenue and 92 Street. Police attempted to conduct a traffic stop with the vehicle, however it failed to stop. A pursuit was initiated but was terminated almost immediately when the suspect entered a residential area while driving dangerously.
