Leduc, Alta.- On Sunday April 17, 2016 at approximately 12:30 a.m. the Leduc RCMP received reports of an erratic driver in a large industrial truck travelling southbound on Highway #2. The RCMP located the vehicle on Highway #2 at 50th Avenue in Leduc where a traffic stop was initiated, and the vehicle failed to stop for officers.

The truck was observed swerving back and forth over the highway and onto the shoulder of the road. The RCMP were able to deploy a spike belt on Highway #2 at Township Road 470 where the truck was disabled. Three males, aged 27, 29 and 31, were arrested from the vehicle without further incident. Investigation reveals that alcohol may be a contributing factor in this incident.

Ongoing investigation confirmed the truck was stolen from a business in Nisku where an additional industrial truck was stolen and abandoned near the business. Extensive damage was noted to the property’s fence.

All three males are currently in custody in Leduc as the investigation remains ongoing.
