Two in custody after high-speed chase down Hwy 2

A police chase that began in Calgary and ended with a tireless stolen vehicle abandoned near Red Deer has resulted in two 28-year-olds being taken into RCMP custody.

A police chase that began in Calgary and ended with a tireless stolen vehicle abandoned near Red Deer has resulted in two 28-year-olds being taken into RCMP custody.

The chase started at 1:15 p.m. Friday, when Airdrie RCMP were advised that a stolen vehicle was leaving Calgary, heading north on Hwy 2. The vehicle was believed to have been involved in “numerous criminal offences” in Calgary, and RCMP deployed ground, air, and canine units to follow the vehicle.

RCMP laid a spike belt in the Olds area, but the loss of both front tires did not stop the suspects from continuing northbound in the vehicle. Eventually, the vehicle was left with only its front rims, and, at 2:15 p.m., the vehicle became inoperable just south of Red Deer.

At that point, the female driver and male passenger exited the vehicle and attempted to flee on foot. According to a release, an RCMP police dog was able to apprehend the female driver as she was about to run into oncoming traffic.

The two Calgarians are in RCMP custody in relation to the incident and “numerous” outstanding warrants.
