Stolen truck from Elk Point found on Highway 2, three arrested

Two people from Frog Lake and one person from Saddle Lake were arrested after a complaint of erractic driving on a major Alberta highway.

The incident happened on Sept. 29 just after noon, when Leduc RCMP Integrated Traffic Unit received a complaint of an erratic driver on Highway 2 heading northbound.

RCMP began patrols and the vehicle was located parked on the shoulder of Highway 2 near the Kavanagh Flyover and the investigation revealed that the vehicle was stolen out of Elk Point.

Two males and one female were arrested without incident, RCMP said on Tuesday.

The female was taken to hospital as a precaution and released back into police custody once cleared.

Moocheweines was also charged with failing to comply with a release order.

All three were released to appear in Leduc Provincial Court on November 12.
