Red Deer Mounties arrest nine people on warrants, court breaches

Nine people face more than 40 charges after Red Deer RCMP arrested them over a six-day period.

Police said the people they arrested were wanted on warrants or were breaching court orders.

Several were found while committing criminal activity, others were picked up after police determined they were breaching court-imposed conditions and one was arrested in a store after assaulting staff with bear spray while attempting to steal merchandise.

The arrest frenzy started on March 15 just after 5 p.m., when police found a stolen truck parked at a north Red Deer convenience store. The driver was arrested without incident. A 29-year-old man faces five charges including possession of stolen property over $5,000.

On March 17, a 24-year-old woman was arrested after she had allegedly assaulted a staff member at a south Red Deer business with pepper spray after a verbal altercation in the store. The woman is charged with two counts of assault, mischief, possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose and theft while armed with an offensive weapon.

Three people were arrested on March 18, starting at 2 a.m. when police found a woman in a stolen truck and arrested her without incident. The 27-year-old is charged with possession of stolen property over and under $5,000.

Two more people were arrested at 3 a.m. that morning when police found a stolen truck with three people inside. The two arrested were wanted on a number of outstanding warrants. A 25-year-old man is charged with numerous court order breaches and a 22-year-old woman is charged with possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose and three counts of possession of stolen property.

On March 19, a woman was arrested after refusing to stop for police. She drove her vehicle over a parking curb and got stuck and was arrested. She faces charges including possession of stolen property over $5,000.

On March 20 and 21, three more people were arrested in Red Deer after police located them, breaching court orders. A 40-year-old woman, a 25-year-old man and a 46-year-old man all face several charges.

“Red Deer RCMP routinely conduct conditions checks on those who are bound by the courts to comply with certain behavioural requirements, such as curfews, requirements to reside at a certain address, not to associate with known criminals, and to keep the peace and be of good behaviour,” said Insp. Gerald Grobmeier of the Red Deer RCMP.
