Suspect arrested after collision in stolen truck

Driver faces charges in court today

A 27-year-old woman faces several charges after she allegedly tried to evade police while driving a stolen truck.

Red Deer RCMP said officers responded to a report of a suspicious truck parked on Orr Drive on Friday shortly after 7 a.m.

As police approached, the truck took off, narrowly missing the police cruiser and striking a vehicle in the intersection of Orr Drive and Oak Drive. The female driver then abandoned the truck and attempted to flee police on foot but was arrested after a brief foot chase.

Several vehicles were damaged as a result of the collision but no one was injured.

The truck was reported stolen out of Edmonton.

The driver was charged with possession of stolen property over $5,000, resisting or obstructing a peace officer, dangerous driving, and failing to comply with conditions. She was to appear in Red Deer provincial court today.

She was also wanted on warrants out of Edmonton for seven counts of possession of stolen property and two counts of failing to appear in court. She was further wanted on a warrant out of Leduc for failing to comply with court-imposed conditions.

Red Deer RCMP thank the public for their continued crime reduction efforts through the reporting suspicious vehicles and suspicious activity.
