Innisfail RCMP make arrests after stolen vehicle recovered

Innisfail RCMP arrested a man and woman after a vehicle, reported stolen out of Calgary, was recovered.

At about 4:30 p.m. Friday, Innisfail RCMP responded to an alert from the Calgary Police Service regarding a stolen truck, which was being tracked by GPS.

RCMP say the vehicle, reported stolen out of Calgary, had failed to stop for Calgary officers and had driven dangerously throughout the city.

Airdrie RCMP located the vehicle north on Highway 2 and attempted to conduct a traffic stop, but the vehicle continued driving dangerously “at a high rate of speed” north on the highway, police said Saturday.

Innisfail RCMP received the vehicle’s location from OnStar – the vehicle had been deactivated on the outskirts of Innisfail.

Police arrived in the area and located a man and woman as they were being picked up by unsuspecting civilians. Innisfail RCMP arrested the suspects and located the stolen vehicle nearby.

Travis Aubichon, 39, of no fixed address, and Hanna McGinn, 18, of Olds, have been jointly charged with possession of property obtained by crime over $5,000, dangerous driving, flight from police and possession of break-in instruments.

Aubichon is also charged with possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose, possession of property obtained by crime under $5,000, carrying a concealed firearm, breach of conditions and unlawful possession of identity documents. He was wanted on five outstanding warrants out of Ponoka.

McGinn is also charged with breach of conditions and possession of a controlled substance. She was wanted on 21 outstanding warrants from multiple jurisdictions across the province.

Both are in custody and will appear at Red Deer Provincial Court Monday.
