St. Paul RCMP With Assistance Arrest Two Involved in Crime Spree

St Paul Mounties arrested two people involved in a crime spree

On Aug. 20, 2019 RCMP members from St. Paul, Smoky Lake, Lac La Biche, Eastern Alberta District Rural Crime Reduction Unit (EADRCRU) and Cold Lake Police Dog Services (PDS) worked together to stop a stolen vehicle involved in crimes throughout several RCMP detachment areas.

That morning, a report was received of a dangerous driver operating a stolen SUV near McRae heading south on Highway 866.  The vehicle was known to police to be connected to break and enters and other property crime offences in the area. The EADRCRU intercepted the stolen vehicle in St. Paul County and engaged in a pursuit which led to Garner Lake. The pursuit was called off near the lake for public safety reasons. Multiple surrounding RCMP detachments assisted with containing the area.

The stolen SUV was located shortly thereafter abandoned and the two occupants who had fled on foot were quickly apprehended by a coordinated effort involving PDS.
