A MAN on the run from police in the Nass Valley may have already made his way here and is possibly heading to Prince George.

Darrell Frederick Grace, 40, is still on the loose after fleeing from Lisims/Nass Valley RCMP in Nass Camp yesterday, March 20, reported police late today.

Police executed a search warrant on the suspicious property at 1718 Nisga’a Hwy and seized quantities of marijuana, unlawfully obtained medication and stolen identification from the property, said police.

Officers also uncovered a marijuana grow-op that had recently been dismantled in a shed on the property, they said.

A man was taken into custody and later released, said police.

All of this came after they searched two cabins and several out buildings, said police.

Further investigation led police to an address nearby on Cranberry Lane in Nass Camp where officers located the marijuana plants from the grow-op being stored there, said police.

A woman, who’s associated with Grace, was questioned by police at this residence, said police.

Grace has outstanding warrants out of Prince George, Alberta and Manitoba, reported police earlier today.

Their search for Grace began yesterday when officers from the Lisims/Nass Valley RCMP detachment were called to investigate suspicious activities at a rural acreage at 1718 Nisga’a Hwy at Nass Camp.

Officers spoke to two men, who lived in two different cabins on the property.

Officers then said Grace fled on foot into a heavily forested area nearby as police were conducting further checks.

A police dog service team from Terrace tracked the suspect through the thick forest and heavy snow for more than three hours, said Sgt. Donovan Tait, the commanding officer of the Lisims/Nass Valley detachment.

Officers set up a perimeter around Nass Camp and the Nisga’a Hwy and advised area residents and motorists of the happenings.

“Police do not believe that Grace is a danger to the public or has access to weapons,” said Tait.

Grace was only wearing a t-shirt with a light jacket, jeans and boots and police were concerned  for his well-being and safety as temperatures dropped well below zero last night and he may have overnighted in the bush.

Grace is believed to be a mushroom harvester and knows the wooded areas and back country very well.

Officers stopped the search as darkness fell last night. The search continued today.
