A Canada-wide warrant has been issued for a man who may have been living last in Red Deer and is considered by police to be unpredictable, armed and dangerous.

Alberta RCMP are seeking help in locating Trevor Norman John Legge, who will turn 30 on Wednesday.

Investigators believe he may be in possession of high-powered weapons.

In a news release on Friday, RCMP say they believe Legge is armed and is a potential danger to community safety.

The Grand Falls, Nfld., native most recently lived in Red Deer, according to what police know at this time.

He is 1.83 meres tall and weighs 79 kg.

Earlier this week, Whitecourt RCMP received a call regarding suspicious activity next to a rural road.

Police arrived to find various items along the road, which investigators believe had been a makeshift temporary camp made by Legge.

Officers recovered two travel trailers, one of which had been reported stolen. A utility trailer, also reported stolen, was found at the scene.

The RCMP Emergency Response Team (ERT) cleared the area, but Legge and any others had already left.

An eyewitness saw two trucks, a red Dodge truck and a green Chevrolet, leaving the area before police arrived.

RCMP were also told that Legge may have been seen in a red truck in Whitecourt on Aug. 5.

On July 30, Whitecourt RCMP tried to stop a driver, suspected to be Legge, for a traffic violation.

The driver didn’t stop, taking off into a rural area off the old Blue Ridge highway.

Shortly after, police found vehicle tracks that had turned into an oil well site and then leading into nearby bush.

RCMP allege the driver of a pickup truck, believed to be Legge, tried to run over the Mounties as they walked into the bush.

The 1993 JEEP Grande Cherokee then crashed into a tree and the driver took off on foot.

Police service dogs and other police units tried to track down the suspect, but to no avail.

It’s alleged the suspect may have contacted someone to pick him up.

Legge is also a suspect in an ongoing break-in investigation in the Whitecourt area, where multiple firearms were reported stolen, say RCMP.

Police say that Legge is facing at least 13 charges from these incidents, with more pending from Whitecourt and Red Deer. Charges include uttering threats, dangerous driving, possession of methamphetamine, and resisting arrest.

There are also warrants for his arrest in Ontario.

Anyone who may see Legge are asked to call their local police agency or CrimeStoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).

The public is warned not to approach him.
