Warrant still out for Red Deer woman accused in fatal hit-and-run collision

Amanda Jo-Lynn Larsen failed to appear before a judge last spring

Police are still looking for a 27-year-old Red Deer woman who was charged after a local man was killed while trying to stop thieves from stealing his truck.

An arrest warrant is still out for Amanda Jo-Lynn Larsen, of no fixed address in Red Deer, after she failed to appear before a judge last spring. Larsen is charged with possession of stolen property over $5,000 as a result of a vehicle theft.

It was the second time Larsen missed a court appearance. A previous warrant was issued for her after Larsen didn’t show for a court date on April 20. She was arrested May 2 and her next appearance was supposed to be on May 16.

Dawson Wegner Cramer of Red Deer was run down by his own truck on March 16. The 23-year-old was hit and killed while trying to stop two people from stealing his work truck from behind his Normandeau home. He was found in distress in an alley and later died of blunt force trauma injuries in hospital.

Alexander Michael Talbot, 24, is charged with manslaughter and theft in the case. He was arrested after a Canada-wide arrest warrant was issued for him last spring.
