Red Deer RCMP arrest different suspects with public’s help

A vigilant public has helped police

An observant and vigilant public has helped Red Deer RCMP make numerous arrests and lay charges recently.

On May 26 at around 5:30 p.m. RCMP located a stolen truck after the owner saw a suspect driving it in Red Deer and then parking in a hotel parking lot. RCMP responded and arrested the suspect as he attempted to hide from police in a hotel room. The Dodge Dakota had been stolen that morning out of Alix. During the course of the arrest, RCMP located a firearm hidden in the toilet of the hotel room and what is believed to be methamphetamine. A man, age 37, faces a number of criminal charges.

Later the same day, at 10:30 p.m., RCMP responded to a report of a suspicious vehicle in a south Red Deer parking lot. On arrival, police located a woman who was found to be in breach of court-imposed conditions and who attempted to evade arrest by giving police a false name. The 28-year-old woman was charged and has since been sentenced.

Shortly after 3 p.m. on May 27, RCMP responded to a report of a male suspect carrying a hatchet and walking through a residential yard on Michener Drive, allegedly threatening the resident’s dog and the resident when confronted. RCMP arrested the suspect without incident and no one was injured. A man, age 30, was charged, including uttering threats, and has been remanded.

On May 28 at about 8 a.m., RCMP responded to a report of a suspicious vehicle in the Kentwood neighbourhood. RCMP located a male suspect at a parked car that had been reported stolen out of Red Deer on May 25. The 24-year-old suspect attempted to flee police on foot but was arrested after a brief chase. He is facing charges including breaching probation.

On Wednesday, just before 11 a.m., RCMP responded to a report of a break and enter in progress at an apartment building in the Highland Green neighbourhood. Police searched the area and arrested the suspect nearby. RCMP determined that the 28-year- old man was wanted on three outstanding warrants for possession of stolen property, possession of break-in instruments and failing to comply with conditions.At 5 pm on May 31, RCMP responded to a report of a theft in progress after a resident at a rural property off C & E trail interrupted a suspect in the process of attempting to steal an ATV from the resident’s garage. The suspect fled on foot when he was confronted; RCMP responded immediately with Police Dog Services, who tracked the suspect to a nearby wooded area where he was hiding.
