On March 18, Chase RCMP responded to a call reporting a domestic disturbance on Hillcrest Road. Upon investigating, police discovered a man involved was wanted on an outstanding arrest warrant. Police attempted to call the man out of the residence, believing he may have been armed, but he did not comply and attempted to flee on foot.

Police report that officers chased down the man and, after a short pursuit and the use of a stun gun, took the man into custody.

These incidents are under investigation, and anyone with information is asked to contact the Chase detachment at 250-679-3221.
