Hot pursuit

Monday between 12 noon and 01.00 pm. a patrol of the Special Robbery Unit, while in the Dutch Quarter area conducting an investigation, identified a suspect for whom for some time now, a warrant for his arrest had been issued. The suspect was riding on a motorcycle and when the detectives attempted to approach the suspect he took off at high speed trying to avoid his capture. The Central Police Dispatch was informed of the incident. Several police patrols were mobilized in order to apprehend the suspects. A high speed chace by police took place over the main roads towards the border to the French side in Cole Bay. Noting the possibilty that the suspect might flee across the border, the Central Police Dispatch notified the French authorities of the incident and that the Dutch Police patrol would be crossing the border. The Police Dispatch was informed that the Gendarmes would be sent immediately to assist the police. The chase continued over the border and ended op in the Sint James area, where the suspect lost control of the motorcycle and fell on the ground. The suspect stood up unhurt and took-off running between the alleys in the resedential area of Sint James. A short footchase by the police, not to lose sight of where the suspect would go in hiding took place, however the suspect disappeared between the buildings. The police patrols then returned to the Dutch Side. The Gendrames will conduct their investigation on the French Side.
