Watch above: man with lengthy criminal record arrested after wild chase in Saskatoon
SASKATOON – A man with a lengthy prison record who had recently been released from prison is facing numerous charges after a wild chase in Saskatoon late Wednesday afternoon.
Timothy Gunn, 25, appeared in Saskatoon provincial court Thursday after the chase left a path of destruction across Saskatoon.
It began around 4:40 p.m. when police received a report of a black truck driving erratically.
“Saskatoon police had received calls of a black half-ton chasing another grey half-ton and the driver of the black half-ton was wearing a hoodie, had a bandana around his face,’ said police chief Clive Weighill.
By the time the pursuit ended, four patrol cars had been damaged along with multiple private vehicles. One person was sent to hospital with minor injuries.
Gunn is also alleged to have attempted to steal two taxis.
At least two shots were fired at the truck that had been stolen from Rosthern after Gunn allegedly drove straight at a police officer.
Gunn is facing a string of charges including possession of a stolen vehicle, dangerous operation of a motor vehicle and assault with a weapon for ramming police cruisers. He will remain in custody until his next appearance on July 2.
He was wanted in Lloydminster, Alta. for an armed robbery in a hotel parking on June 11.
Mounties said the robbery was not a random event and has ties to the drug trade in the border city.
One other person wanted in the robbery remains at large.
Police are looking for Sara Elizabeth Manners, who is known to frequent the Lloydminster, Edmonton and Saskatoon areas.
She is considered armed and dangerous and should not be approached.
