Police arrest four teens after foot chase in Bedford

Four teenagers are facing a number of charges after a lengthy police chase early Sunday morning.

The RCMP say the trouble began two days ago, when a car was stolen in Bedford. A second vehicle  - an SUV  - was reported stolen from a home in Lower Sackville Sunday morning.

Windsor police discovered the first missing car empty in a parking lot just before 3 a.m. Sunday.

That’s when the situation took a dramatic turn.

"As the police officer on scene there arranged to have that towed out of there, the second vehicle showed up on scene and struck one of the police vehicles in the parking lot," said Sgt. Jeff West. "From there it took off inbound on highway 101 towards Halifax."

The police followed the vehicle, and ended up using a spike belt to punch holes in the tires. The vehicle continued onto the Bedford Highway, and then onto Dartmouth Road where it finally crashed into a sign post.

West said the four people in the car then ran off. The police brought in a dog who quickly led them to the four suspects.

Four teens are now in custody. They include two girls aged 13 and 15 from Sackville, and two boys aged 15 and 18 from Halifax.
