An investigation into a single vehicle collision in the Highlands led to the arrest of a woman after she fled the scene of the crash.

At approximately 9:30 am on September 29, 2021, West Shore RCMP officers responded to a report of a single vehicle collision on Millstream Road near Lost Lake Road in the Highlands. Witnesses were able to provide a detailed description of the driver who left the scene, apparently uninjured.

During the course of the investigation, it was determined that the white Dodge van involved in the crash had been reported stolen out of Victoria, says Cst. Alex Bérubé, Media Relations Officer, West Shore RCMP.

More police resources were brought in to assist, including the Police Service Dog (PSD) Halla, who was quick to track down the suspect who was hiding in the bush off the roadway nearby.

This woman, 27-year-old Audrey Moffatt, was subsequently arrested and held for a telebail where she was charged with Possession of Stolen Property and Breach of Probation as she was bound with conditions to not be in a motor vehicle, said Cst. Bérubé.

The investigation is still ongoing.

If you have any information, contact the West Shore RCMP at 250-474-2264.
