A police spike belt was used to blow out the tires of a vehicle that led officers on a chase through Winnipeg on Tuesday.

Police first spotted what they believed to be a stolen pickup truck just after 4:30 a.m. in the city's West End.

They followed all the way to the north edge of the city, finally putting down the spike belt on Henderson Highway north of the Perimeter.

Despite the four blown tires, the truck kept going until it finally stopped in the East St. Paul municipality.

In total, the chase took about 40 minutes.

A 50-year-old man is in custody, facing numerous charges "in relation to the stolen vehicle, his manner of driving and aggressive behaviour with officers," police said.

No one was hurt.
