Man Runs After Being Found With Large Knife And Crack

A foot chase on the east side in the early morning hours has resulted in criminal charges for one young man.

Sergeant Jay Henderson of the Saint John Police Department explains they got a 911 hang up call shortly before 5 in the morning from an address off Golden Grove Road, where a 25 year old man on a court order to keep the peace and stay off drugs was found to be in possession of what looked like crack, as well as a large knife.

The man tried to make a run for it while police took him into custody but was soon found in the nearby woods.

He's now facing criminal charges including possession and escaping custody.
