Traffic Stop in Prince George Results in Arrest

Travis Fortnum

Around 2:30 a.m. on Wednesday, March 13, an RCMP officer in Prince George attempted to pull over a vehicle on Strathcona Avenue.

The driver didn’t stop and continued west.

As the driver attempted to flee, the officer tried to block them in at the end of the street.

The driver then rammed into the police cruiser.

Shortly after, the driver and passenger of the vehicle were arrested.

The officer was not hurt, but a search of the vehicle revealed bear spray, knives and suspected fentanyl.

The man driving the vehicle remains in custody, facing several charges.

He’s been identified as 33-year-old Daniel Jakins of Penticton.

It turns out he’s the subject of a Canada-wide warrant for Break & Enter, Possession of Break-in Instruments and Driving While Prohibited.

Charges against Jaikans include:

  • Assaulting a Peace Officer with a Weapon
  • Fail to Stop for a Peace Officer
  • Possession of a Weapon Dangerous to Public Peace (2 counts)
  • Carry a Concealed Weapon
Jakins will appear in Provincial Court later today.
