KAMLOOPS - Police are investigating two separate incidents of drivers fleeing their vehicles on Tuesday, May 5.
Around 2:15 p.m. several marked and unmarked police vehicles along with an RCMP dog handler unit were on scene at Ord Road near the dog park and Tranquille Road.
Cpl. Cheryl Bush, a spokesperson for the Kamloops RCMP, says officers chased down two occupants who fled a vehicle. She says it appears the vehicle was uninsured. Both the driver and passenger are in custody.
Bush says there was a second unrelated incident of a driver fleeing on foot after they were pulled over for speeding.
"It's been determined they're investigating a prohibited driver," she says.
Around 1:45 p.m. InfoNews.ca received reports of another police presence near Lethbridge Avenue and Halston Avenue. Bush could not confirm if it's the location of the second incident.
