LELAND — A Leland Police Officer ran his vehicle into a ditch while responding to a 911 call regarding the robbery of a Brunswick Forest resident.

The police car was temporarily lodged in a shallow ditch Tuesday morning outside the Stoney Creek neighborhood off Hazels Branch Road.

The 911 call came in before 10:45 a.m. from Evangeline Drive in Brunswick Forest, according to the Leland Police Department (LPD). Damage to the vehicle was minor and no one was injured.
