Police arrest woman who took off on them last month

Fled from police in a vehicle in May

A Guelph woman faces charges after taking off from police last month.

Approximately 3:15 a.m. May 10, officers patrolling in the area of Willow Road and Silvercreek Parkway North attempted to stop a vehicle as the plates were not registered to the vehicle. The vehicle initially slowed, then took off at a high rate of speed.

Officers did not pursue in the interest of public safety, however the driver was identified via surveillance video from a nearby business.

On Wednesday the same woman was observed driving the vehicle on Stone Road East and was stopped.

A 33-year-old woman is charged with dangerous driving, flight from police, possessing stolen property and several Highway Traffic Act offences.
