Charges laid in stolen vehicle incident

Fourth suspect wanted in connection with stolen vehicle collision still at large

Three suspects arrested on Tuesday after a stolen vehicle crashed in downtown Red Deer are facing stolen property and weapons charges.

RCMP allege a vehicle, which had been reported stolen on Feb. 16, fled police earlier in the morning and was then involved in a gas and dash about noon.

The vehicle was spotted again near 43rd Street and 49th Avenue after it collided about 1 p.m. with two other vehicles. No one was injured in the collision.

All inside the suspect vehicle fled from the scene. Two men and a woman, who fled in different directions, were arrested within blocks of the collision.

A fourth suspect remains at large.

A 30-year-old woman is facing two charges of possession of stolen property over $5,000, possession of a prohibited weapon and resisting or obstructing a police officer.

At the time of her arrest the woman was wanted on eight warrants out of Red Deer and Sylvan Lake related to stolen property, fraud, failing to appear in court and traffic offences.

A 30-year-old man is facing possession of stolen property and resisting or obstructing a police officer charges, as well as failing to comply with probation and court orders.

A 31-year-old man is charged with possession of a prohibited weapon, possessing a weapon contrary to a court order, possession of stolen property over $5,000 and resisting or obstructing a peace officer.

Police said no firearms were involved, but a Taser was one of the prohibited weapons.

All three are due to appear in Red Deer provincial court on Thursday morning.
