Driver sentenced after Hwy 2 chase
A suspect who was tracked by police to Red Deer after a vehicle was stolen in Calgary has pleaded guilty to breaching his release conditions.
Darren Bergman, 28, of Calgary, was sentenced to a seven-day jail term and fined $100 during an appearance this week in Red Deer provincial court.
Two other charges against Bergman were dropped — possessing proceeds of a crime and possessing stolen property.
But Bergman still faces more serious charges in Calgary.
Last month, a Calgary Police helicopter followed a pickup truck travelling northbound on Hwy 2. Members of Airdrie RCMP eventually arrested Bergman and Melissa Johnston, 28, of Airdrie, after a vehicle was stopped with a spike belt near Red Deer.
