Incident report #SSU 022/3898

On Monday 17 March 2003, at 0745 hours, two Kosovo Police Service officers were on  patrol duty in a police vehicle when they observed a white van type vehicle, license
#496 KS 858 driving very fast. The officers stopped the white van type vehicle for questioning by using their blue police flashing light. The driver stopped his vehicle and the patrol vehicle stopped five meters behind his vehicle. As the officers started to exit their vehicle, the driver of the white van type vehicle sped away very quickly. The officers ran back to their vehicle and chased the white van type vehicle west on Airport Street. The police vehicle drove at speeds in excess of 120km per hour while chasing the offender’s vehicle, but were unable to catch the offender’s vehicle because it was going twenty km per hour faster than the police vehicle. Suddenly, the offender turned his vehicle north on to an unpaved roadway. The officers continued the pursuit. The offender drove for approximately a hundred meters more, when he drove into a large hole in the road and lost control of his vehicle. The vehicle slid across the road and struck a large tree, causing damage to the front, driver’s side of the vehicle and then rolled upside down into a deep ditch on the South side of the roadway at grid reference 184-846. The officers stopped their vehicle on the opposite side of the road and proceeded cautiously toward the offender’s vehicle. When they were approximately two meters away from the white van type vehicle they could see that the offender was still in his vehicle but was not moving. There were no signs of blood or injury to the offender. As the officers got closer they could see three bundles, approximately 35cm by 20cm by 25cm, in the rear cargo area of the vehicle. One of the bundles was ripped open and a dark green plant material was spilling out. The first officer proceeded to the front of the vehicle to check the physical condition of the driver. The offender was breathing but did not respond to any of the officer’s verbal commands. The officer radioed for an ambulance and the offender was taken to the local hospital. The second officer searched the offender’s vehicle and found another bundle under the front seat, with a knife. The knife was 20cm long with old blood stains. There were no papers or registration found in the vehicle. All materials were seized as evidence and taken to Police Station #4.

Follow-up report #SSU 022/3898

The bundles of dark green plant material that were taken from the accident scene were tested and found to be marijuana. The weight of each bundle was two kilos. The total estimated value of all of the marijuana was 40,000 euros. The investigation will continue until the officers can question the offender. The blood stains on the knife was tested and revealed to be animal blood, of an unknown type.

Follow-up report #SSU 022/3898

There did not appear to be any internal injuries but the man remained unconscious.
