Central Alberta suspects flee from police in stolen vehicle

Innisfail RCMP arrest two suspects

Two Innisfail suspects were charged after they allegedly fled police in a stolen vehicle on May 30.

RCMP said officers responded to a report of a suspicious vehicle near the Innisfail CO-OP Card lock at about 7:35 p.m. Officers tried to conduct a traffic stop, but the vehicle fled from the police at a high rate of speed.

Members of the public who had witnessed the suspect vehicle driving dangerously throughout Innisfail assisted RCMP by providing updates of sightings of the vehicle.

At one point while fleeing, the driver caused damage to the vehicle’s underside leaving a trail of fluid.

The vehicle, which was discovered to be stolen, was located shortly after in an alley between 45 and 46 Ave. in Innisfail. Two suspects were seen by a witness running away on foot.

RCMP Police Dog Services tracked two suspects to a local motel where they were later arrested after trying to change their appearance.

Christopher Lyle Hannah, 45, and Christina Lynn Tiffin-Taylor, 42, both of Innisfail were jointly charged with possession of property obtained by crime, two counts of flight from a peace officer, and two counts of failing to comply with a release order.

Tiffin-Taylor is also charged with dangerous operation of a motor vehicle, driving while unauthorized, plus charges under the Traffic Safety Act.

Hannah and Tiffin-Taylor are schedule to attend Red Deer Provincial Court on July 14.
