Two charged following flight from police

The Two Hills RCMP called in the help of the Cold Lake Police Dog Services and three other detachments to capture two vehicle theft suspects.

On May 12, 2019, Two Hills RCMP, with the assistance of the Vegreville RCMP, Smoky Lake RCMP, Redwater RCMP Traffic Services and Cold Lake Police Dog Service recovered two stolen vehicles after suspects fled through farmers’ fields in Willingdon.

At approximately 5:50 PM, a truck was reported stolen from a rural residence. Police located it nearby when it fled the scene and attempted to evade police through fences and fields until it got stuck.

Two suspects then used a quad located in the back deck but it also got stuck. Both suspects fled on foot and one was apprehended quickly. Police Dog Services were able to track down the second suspect and arrest him without incident. The suspect suffered minor injuries and was taken to hospital but was released back into police custody.

The truck and quad were found to be stolen from the Willingdon area.
