Peterborough police are asking for the public’s help in identifying a car that fled from a traffic stop early Saturday morning (September 23).
At around 1:50 a.m. on Saturday, an officer on general patrol conducted a traffic stop in the area of George Street and Lansdowne Street for a car that had no license plate.
The car initially stopped for the officer but, when the officer got out of his vehicle and approached the driver, the car sped off at high speed. A short pursuit was called off.
The vehicle, which police describe as a grey Hyundai Genesis with no license plate, was last seen heading westbound at Lansdowne Street at Monaghan Road.
The traffic stop was captured on the Peterborough police’s in-car camera system and police are supplying a portion of the video in an effort to help identify the vehicle and driver (see below).
