A man on a motorcycle was arrested last Friday after fleeing police in downtown Red Deer. Police tried to pull the motorcycle over around 10 p.m., but it fled at a high speed. Officers did not pursue motorcycle, which was seen running red lights, due to public safety reasons.

Red Deer RCMP were called to a business where a 26-year-old woman reportedly tried to use a fraudulent cheque on May 17.
