Saskatoon police say a 38-year-old man led officers on a chase early Wednesday morning.
Officers reportedly tried to pull over a car seen driving without a licence plate around 4 a.m. near the intersection of McPherson Avenue and Bute Street.
The driver allegedly refused to stop, prompting police to call in the air support unit.
The police plane tracked the vehicle as it sped out of the city, then came back into Saskatoon in the north end.
Police said officers on the ground made a number of attempts to pop the suspect car’s tires, but were unsuccessful.
The car eventually came to a dead end on Battleford Trail, at which time the air support unit saw the driver get out and hide under some nearby construction equipment.
He was reportedly arrested without incident after officers in the plane were able to guide police on the ground to his hiding spot.
Police said the car the man was driving turned out to have been stolen. He was charged with dangerous driving, evading police and possession of stolen property.
