Red Deer RCMP catch suspected truck thief in Inglewood

Police dog tracks down suspect who crashed into parked vehicle

Red Deer Mounties tracked down and arrested a man suspected of driving a stolen truck, crashing it, and then fleeing on foot in the Inglewood neighbourhood early Friday morning.

RCMP said in a statement that they received a report of an erratic driver in the alley behind Ireland Crescent 4:15 a.m. A truck stolen out of Red Deer had collided with a second, parked truck and then caused damage to the alley’s cable fence and an electrical pole.

The driver then abandoned the truck and fled on foot. Police contained the area between 40th Avenue and Ingersoll Street, and Ironside Street to 19th Street. Police Dog Services tracked the suspect to a yard on Ireland Crescent, where he was taken into custody.

A 25-year-old Red Deer man will face charges for dangerous operation of a motor vehicle, failing to remain at the scene of an accident, obstruction of a peace officer, mischief, possession of stolen property over $5,000, and failing to comply with a probation order.

Charges have not yet been sworn before the courts.
