Grande Prairie RCMP have charged one female from Valleyview after she failed to comply with a traffic stop and rammed police vehicles with her pick-up truck.

On Wednesday, RCMP spotted a suspicious vehicle shortly after 4 a.m. on the north side of the city.

Police turned on their lights and sirens in an attempt to conduct a traffic stop, but the driver attempt to evade them and eventually turned into the Mountview neighbourhood.

When RCMP attempted to block the vehicle in a cul-de-sac, the suspect drove into occupied police vehicles in an attempt to get past them, which caused substantial damage to near-by vehicles and property.

The driver of the suspect pick-up truck was arrested without incident, while a female passenger and male passenger were also arrested.

The 26-year-old driver, Becki Mustus of Valleyview, has been charged with dangerous operation of a motor vehicle, two counts of assault on a police officer with a weapon, fail to stop after collision, breach of conditions of release order, operate uninsured motor vehicle and operate motor vehicle without a licence.

Mustus has been remanded in custody and is scheduled to appear in Grande Prairie Provincial court on May 4.
