Youths charged after vehicle crashes into house
Two youths were charged and a police warrant was issued for a third youth after a stolen vehicle crashed into a home in a Red Deer neighbourhood Thursday.
RCMP were called to a collision in Timberlands at 3 p.m. Thursday. A vehicle struck a home, and the vehicle’s occupants had fled on foot.
There were no injuries, but RCMP discovered the vehicle involved had been reported stolen from Canmore.
Police officers searched the area and found youths who matched the description of the suspects. They were arrested in the vicinity of the crash.
A 14-year-old female from Canmore was charged with possession of stolen property and mischief.
A 17-year-old male from Red Deer was also charged with possession of stolen property, mischief and dangerous driving.
The two were released from custody and are slated to appear on Jan. 17 in Alberta Provincial Youth Court.
A warrant was also issued against a 15-year-old male from Red Deer for several offences, including possession of stolen property.
The youths cannot be named under provisions of the Youth Criminal Justice Act.
