String of charges for Hythe man after police chase
Feb 10, 2017
A man from Hythe is facing a long list of charges after several thefts in the Beaverlodge area.
Police say they got a call Wednesday afternoon of a suspect driving a stolen vehicle. Neither was located.
At 11:00 that night, they got another call of a suspect demanding keys from people at a rural residence. The man fled in a vehicle, striking a police car.
Just after midnight, a third call came in of a break-in at another rural residence. The suspect was tracked down after getting stuck in the ditch and trying to run away.
Forty-three-year-old Chad Wiwchar of Hythe is facing 41 charges, including assaulting a peace officer, possession of stolen property and seven theft under $5000 counts.
He is due in court Monday.
