On Sept. 25, at about 6 a.m., Leduc RCMP received a report of an erratic driver in the area of Range Road 224 in Leduc County.
Officers made patrols and located the suspect vehicle parked on the side of Range Road 224 between Hwy. 21 and Hwy. 623 in Leduc County.
A traffic stop was initiated and the vehicle fled from police. It’s believed that the suspect vehicle then drove onto several rural properties in the area of Leduc County, Camrose County, and Wetaskiwin County and damaged fences as a result.
Leduc RCMP continued to make patrols with the assistance of the Beaumont RCMP, Wetaskiwin RCMP, Camrose RCMP, and the RCMP Police Dog Services and located the suspect vehicle stuck in a field near Range Road 222 and Township Road 472 in Wetaskiwin County.
Both occupants of the vehicle were arrested. Police are not looking for any other suspects at this time.
“We would like to thank the public who reported these individuals,” says Const. Cheri-Lee Smith, Leduc RCMP public information officer.
“The information we received from the public was crucial and led us to locate and arrest the suspects.”
Leduc RCMP continue to investigate this string of mischiefs and believe that there may be other damaged properties in the area and request any information related to this property damage investigation.
Anyone with information is asked to contact the Leduc RCMP at 780-980-7200.
