Nanaimo RCMP are asking for the public’s help in identifying a dirt bike driver who failed to stop for police.
On Saturday, April 10th, at approximately 6 p.m., a dirt biker without a license plate was followed by an RCMP officer near Nanaimo River Road and White Rapids Road.
As the officer approached the dirt bike, the driver sped off.
About 30 seconds later, the dirt biker “stunted” passed the officer in the opposite direction. Stunting refers to driving with one wheel on the road.
The officer turned his emergency activation equipment on and partially blocked the road in an attempt to stop the rider.
The dirt bike driver sped up and drove off past the officer, and the officer did not pursue.
Nanaimo RCMP report that the rider’s only identifiable feature was that the bike has gold-coloured shocks.
It is unknown if the rider is a man or woman due to the driver wearing a helmet and visor.
Nanaimo RCMP are asking anyone with information in regards to the incident to call them at 250-754-2345.
