An attempt by a Canadian woman to circumvent the police in connection with an allegedly fraudulent purchase collapsed.
Police were summoned to a mini-market in Spruce Grove, Alberta, on Monday afternoon after Brittany Burke and Richard Pariseau allegedly attempted to make a purchase with a stolen credit card, CTV News reported.
When the police arrived, a scuffle ensued, as seen on security cameras. Burke, 29, attempted to escape the officer by running into the shop's storeroom and crawling into the ventilation system when her partner was fighting the authorities, according to the Canadian TV network.
Moments later, the woman is thrown through the blanket into the shop. Reinforcements were called and the couple surrendered.
Pariseau, 28, is reportedly charged with 11 counts, including the use of a stolen credit card, resistance to arrest, and assault on a police officer while Burke was charged with obstructing a police officer, failing to comply with a duty, and mischief, CTV reported
