A 27-year old Alberta man faces charges after he wound up getting his vehicle stuck on a concrete median while trying to flee police in Langford.
Shortly before 10:00 a.m. on Wednesday, West Shore RCMP were called to investigate an alleged fraud involving a credit card at the Four Points Sheraton Hotel on McCallum Road.
Officers learned that the credit card used at the hotel was fake and that the suspect was still inside the hotel.
Police located a white Ford pickup associated with the suspect and observed one man getting into it.
Police attempted to prevent the vehicle from driving away but the driver fled the parking lot towards Leigh Rd, in attempt to evade police.
Police did not pursue the vehicle as it was deemed too dangerous at the time.
However, the vehicle was spotted moments later, stuck on the cement median at the intersection of McCallum Rd and Leigh Rd after nearly striking a flagger working in that area.
The lone male occupant, a 27-year old man from Alberta, was arrested at the scene.
The man was held in custody and was set to appear in court Thursday to answer to charges ranging from Dangerous Operation of a Motor Vehicle to Fraud.
