Youth charged in officer-involved hit-and-run

A 15-year-old girl has been charged with one count of theft of a motor vehicle in relation to an officer-involved hit-and-run that occurred yesterday in the northwest community of Huntington Hills. The officer was not injured, and police continue to look for the driver of the vehicle.

On Thursday, Oct. 27, at approximately 3:30 a.m., a woman called police to report that her 15-year-old daughter was missing, along with the woman’s vehicle. Using a locator application on her daughter’s cell phone, the woman tracked the girl’s location to the Huntington Hills area.

Police located the vehicle in the 0 to 100 block of Hunterhorn Drive N.E. with two occupants inside. As one officer was speaking to the driver, the driver pulled the vehicle away from the curb, making contact with the officer’s leg, and fled the area.

The 15-year-old girl was later located after she returned to her home and was arrested. Police continue to follow up on investigative leads in pursuit of the driver.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact police by calling 403-266-1234. Tips can also be submitted anonymously to Crime Stoppers through any of the following methods:
