BIGGAR – A man who was evading police has been arrested by Biggar RCMP.
Police say that they located Derrick Seefried in Biggar on Feb. 7. He is scheduled to appear in court Feb. 9.
His co-accused Tami Falcon – who was also evading police – was granted bail Wednesday in Saskatoon Provincial Court. She is scheduled to appear in court again on March 7 for election.
The two were wanted by Kindersley RCMP following a break-in at a rural home on Feb. 3. Police say that just after midnight they got a call about the break-in at a residence in Eston. When they arrived they saw a silver car parked outside the home. As the police approached the car it drove off and almost struck an officer. The officer wasn’t injured.
Kindersley RCMP later found the silver car on Highway 30 and tried to stop it but the driver refused to stop.
At about 2 a.m., Rosetown RCMP found the vehicle in Rosetown and tried to stop it but again the driver refused to stop for police and rammed two police vehicles as it fled.
Police issued arrest warrants for Derrick Seefried, 26, and Tami Falcon, 22, both from Biggar.
On Feb. 6 Biggar RCMP arrested Falcon in Biggar.
The charges against the accused haven’t been tested in court.
