On October 27, 2016 at approximately 1100hrs RCMP Integrated Traffic Services attempted to stop a vehicle on Hwy 770 just north of HWY 39.  The truck, a 2011 Toyota Tundra silver in color, was found traveling at a very high rate of speed.

Members attempted to stop the vehicle but it continued west from Hwy 770 departing the roadway and entering farm fields through barbed wire fences.  The pursuit was immediately terminated due to the dangers it presented.

The vehicle was later located on a farm yard near RR43 and Twp Rd 492.  The vehicle had struck a tree and caused significant damage.  The driver fled the scene.

The vehicle contained a firearm which has since been recovered.

After an extensive search by Thorsby/Breton RCMP, Stony Plain RCMP, and RCMP Police Dog Service the driver was not located.

The Driver was described as Aboriginal, 6ft tall, slim build.

The vehicle was later discovered from the area of Stony Plain. Investigation continues into the identity of the driver.

If you have any information that could assist in this investigation, or if you believe the trailer belongs to you please contact the Breton RCMP at 780-696-3520; or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or www.crimestoppers.ab.ca.
