WINNIPEG – Police found a suspect hiding in an unusual spot after crashing a stolen car Thursday night.
Around 8:40 pm police spotted the vehicle near Watt and Chalmers, but the driver crashed into a snowbank when he saw the cop car.
Three people got out and took off.
Not long after, the Air-1 chopper’s searchlight illuminated a tree, and police spotted the driver 30 metres up.
“You have to think, once you’re up there, you can pretty well confirm in your own mind that there’s nowhere else you’re going to go,” explained a flabbergasted Constable Rob Carver. “And you’re not staying, so he complied with our instructions to come down.”
2o-year-old Dallas Ross faces charges. The two passengers that ran off are still at large.
