VicPD arrest wanted Coquitlam man

Man flees traffic stop before being traced back to Red Lion Inn

  • Oct. 3, 2012 6:00 a.m.

Victoria police are trumpeting an intelligence-led deployment technique after it led to the arrest of a man wanted for assault and three counts of breach.

A K9 team officer was conducting traffic stops Tuesday on Burnside Road as part of VicPD’s hot spot policing model, where officers are deployed to identified problem areas.

A driver was pulled over for suspicious behaviour around 1:30 a.m., but quickly fled after being identified. Police traced the BMW sedan to the Red Lion Inn at 3366 Douglas St.  and arrested the man in his hotel room.

The driver, a 32-year-old Coquitlam man, faces charges of dangerous driving, flight from police, obstruction and breach of recognizance in addition to his previous charges.

He is being held while VicPD liaise with Coquitlam RCMP to facilitate his return.
