Kidnapping Suspect Arrested By Falmouth Police After Car Chase

A man is in custody after allegedly kidnapping four people at gunpoint before bringing police on a high-speed car chase.

Falmouth police say 32-year-old Bryan Purdie arrived at a home on Carriage Road early yesterday afternoon with a gun, fired a shot then held four people at gunpoint.

When a woman tried to flee, Purdie allegedly forced her at gunpoint into his car.

That prompted a high-speed police pursuit through Falmouth as he weaved through traffic, hit another car and passed a school bus letting the kids off.

Police eventually tracked Purdie down and arrested him.

He faces numerous charges and is being held on $50,000 cash bail.
