On June 13, 2018, members of the St. Paul RCMP Detachment along with the Eastern Alberta District Crime Reduction Unit (EADCRU) and St. Paul Police Dog Service (PDS) set out on patrol to apprehend a male youth wanted on multiple warrants in Saddle Lake.
Police located a stolen vehicle from Bruderheim, Alberta and a stolen trailer from Smoky Lake County, Alberta at a residence.
The male youth then fled the residence on an off-highway vehicle.
Through a coordinated approach the male youth was successfully apprehended a short time later and taken into custody. A second male youth was also located hiding inside the residence and was arrested for outstanding warrants from Edmonton, Alberta.
Both males were released with court conditions.
The male youth that fled from police is facing additional charges of resisting a peace officer and failing to comply with conditions of a probation order and will be appearing in St. Paul Provincial Court on June 28, 2018.
The second male youth will be appearing in Edmonton Provincial Court on June 20, 2018. Both youths cannot be named under provisions of the Youth Criminal Justice Act.
