File # 2017-6933
On August 2 in Errington, 28 year old Gregory George King of no fixed address fled from police during a vehicle stop in Errington. Police queries indicated that King had 5 arrest warrants and had been evading police from Powell River, Nanaimo and Oceanside for some time. The warrants were for offences ranging from Fraud, Theft, and Obstructing Police.
On August 4 at 1500 hours, Oceanside RCMP spotted King on a bicycle in the French Creek area of Parksville and he again tried to outrun police. King was arrested after struggling with police and new charges of Escape Lawful Custody and Resisting Arrest now proposed.
King is being held in custody until August 8, when he will go before a Judge at Nanaimo Provincial Court.
