UCCM Police arrest man following foot chase

During the afternoon hours of October 10, UCCM Police were conducting RIDE spot checks in the community of Whitefish River when they observed a male passenger from an approaching Dodge Ram pickup truck suddenly jump out of the vehicle. The passenger was readily identified by officers at the RIDE spot check as a 30-year-old male who was wanted by UCCM Police for outstanding arrest warrants.

A foot chase ensued but within minutes the fleeing fugitive was arrested and taken into policy custody by UCCM officers. The accused was held in custody pending bail scheduled for the October 13 and faces two counts of possession of property obtained by crime under $5,000 and one count of fail to appear.
