Dartmouth man arrested after alleged break-and-enter, hit-and-run in Burnside Industrial Park
A 40-year-old Dartmouth man is in police custody after an alleged break-and-enter and hit-and-run in the Burnside Industrial Park overnight.
Police say they were called at 11:09 p.m. Tuesday to an accident at Burnside Drive and Wright Avenue in Dartmouth. The vehicle that had allegedly left the scene was spotted “moments later” — with extensive front-end damage — on Wright Avenue by police.
According to police, they tried to stop the vehicle, but it fled at a high rate of speed. Officers later found the vehicle at a residence on Novawood Drive in Dartmouth and the driver was arrested.
At around the same time as the alleged hit-and-run, police also responded to a commercial alarm at a business on Ilsley Avenue in Burnside.
