Blackfalds RCMP make stolen vehcilce arrests

Two people have been arrested for possession of stolen vehicles near Blackfalds.

Around 11 a.m. on Tuesday, RCMP spotted a Ford 350 truck on RR 273, which had previously reported stolen out of Ponoka.

A 30-year-old man attempted to flee on foot before being arrested without further incident.
