Wetaskiwin RCMP respond to a break and enter and suspicious vehicle

A youth is facing over a dozen serious criminal and traffic charges after a person was caught breaking into a Wetaskiwin home May 15.

According to Wetaskiwin RCMP spokesperson Cst. Christine Hepburn, “On May 15th, 2018 at 2:46 a.m. police were dispatched to a complaint of a break and enter. The homeowner confronted the male and he fled on foot.

“The male had attempted to steal personal electronics from the residence. He was described as wearing a grey hoodie, 5’10 in height. Patrols were made and the male was not located at the time. “

However, Hepburn noted RCMP would get another chance at arresting a suspect. “At 5:16 a.m. police were dispatched to a suspicious vehicle complaint on Highway 13 west of Wetaskiwin,” stated Hepburn.

“A Dodge pick-up truck was in the ditch and there were three individuals now on foot. A male was arrested on scene who matched the description from the break and enter earlier in the evening and was arrested. Police determined that the Dodge pick-up had been stolen from Wetaskiwin sometime earlier in the evening.”

Hepburn stated a male youth, 17-years-old, from Edmonton, Alberta, has been charged with the following offences: seven counts of Fail to comply with Probation, Break and Enter into residence, Possession of Property over $5000, Possession of weapon for dangerous purpose, Impaired Care or Control of a motor vehicle, Failure/refusal to provide breath sample and numerous traffic safety violations.

The youth’s first court date is May 16th, 2018 in Wetaskiwin.

Hepburn stated in a press release on May 18th Wetaskiwin RCMP were dispatched to a multi vehicle collision on Highway 2A. Police responded to the scene. It was determined that there were seven vehicles involved. Emergency medical services treated all individuals involved.

Police determined from their investigation that one vehicle had been turning west from Hwy# 2A and was struck from behind. Several patients were treated and released from hospital with minor injuries.
