Sylvan Lake RCMP say a man who rammed a police car and led police on a chase on Saturday night is considered armed and dangerous.

Police have charged Lance James Peters, 24, of no fixed address with a series of offences, including flight from police, ramming a police vehicle and failing to remain at the scene of an accident.

Police say the man, who escaped their capture, has access to weapons and should not be approached. Anyone seeing the man should call 911.

The charges stem from a routine traffic stop in Sylvan Lake on Saturday night near C.P. Blakely School.

Police say the driver lied to police about his identity. When police attempted to arrest him for numerous outstanding warrants, the man fled in a Dodge truck, narrowly missing an officer. The driver rammed a police vehicle before leading police on a chase from Sylvan Lake north on Hwy 20 towards Bentley. Police called off the chase deeming the risk to the public as too high.

Police say Peters was last seen in Bentley driving a stolen 2011 Blue Dodge Ram truck bearing Alberta licence plate BCG-7215.

The man has been charged with obstructing a peace officer, theft of a truck, resisting arrest, flight from police, failing to remain at the scene of an accident and dangerous driving.

Peters has also been linked to numerous break-ins in the Rocky Mountain House and Sylvan Lake areas, and to many vehicle thefts. He has ties to Rocky Mountain House, Red Deer, Rimbey and Sylvan Lake.
