An Investigation Into an Injury to a Suspect Following a Police Pursuit Near Flin Flon Has Concluded.

The Independent Investigation Unit has concluded its investigation into an incident in which a man sustained injuries after stealing a vehicle with a child inside. On July 31, 2018, a woman stopped at a Creighton convenience store leaving her truck idling with her three-year-old daughter inside. The woman observed her truck backing out of the parking lot and called Creighton RCMP who notified the Flin Flon detachment. This resulted in a pursuit on number ten highway, the deployment of a spike belt, a collision and the use of a police dog.
The child was uninjured. The suspect was taken to Flin Flon hospital suffering from a dog bite where it was determined he also had broken ribs which is defined as a serious injury under IIU regulations so the agency was mandated to investigate.
Civilian director Zane Tessler reported the pursuit and use of the spike belt and police dog were all appropriate in the circumstances and the collision resulting in the broken rib was the sole responsibility of the suspect.  They determined no charges should be laid against any officer as a result of the incident.
