Investigators believe on Dec. 2, Bryce Scott Telford, 21, tried to pull someone over in his black Chevrolet Tahoe in the Brookswood area using flashing lights in the windshield and front grill of the vehicle. After initially pulling over, the person in the other car quickly figured out the driver was not a police officer when the car pulled in front.

“It was more about the way that they were behaving and the fact that they had pulled in front of the car and didn’t actually operate the way a police officer would normally operate. It appeared they were behaving more criminally,” explains Corporal Holly Largy.

The person then drove to a gas station parking lot and told the suspect they had called police. The Tahoe took off.
Mounties later identified Telford’s car, found it and seized it.

Telford is known to police and they believe he has gone into hiding.
