The Royal Newfoundland Constabulary is investigating an incident on Saturday after police attempted to conduct a traffic stop on the Manuels Access Road.

Police tried to pull over an eastbound pickup truck, but the vehicle didn't stop and a short chase ensued.

A 'high-risk vehicle stop' was engaged by the RNC, and officers drew their firearms, but did not aim.

A juvenile male was charged with flight from police, dangerous driving and operating a motor vehicle without a licence.

He was released to his parents.
