Warrant roundup sees four charged with help from Eastern Alberta District Rural Crime Reduction Unit, Lakeland Crime Reduction Unit, RCMP Air Services, Police Dog Services (PDS).
Four people have been arrested and charged after a warrant roundup of wanted individuals in Frog Lake, the Elk Point RCMP said on Wednesday.
On Dec. 2, Elk Point RCMP were doing the roundup when a stolen truck was located with occupants inside.
With assistance from multiple detachments, RCMP helicopters and police dogs in the surrounding area, the truck was followed.
A tire deflation device was deployed after the vehicle failed to stop near Cold Lake, police said, and two females and a male were arrested without incident, while a fourth, a male youth, fled the scene on foot.
The youth was later apprehended by PDS and suffered minor injuries as a result of interactions with police and the dog, RCMP said.
He was taken to hospital by ambulance and released back into police custody a short time later.
During the pursuit, several items were thrown from the truck which resulted in the windshield of a police vehicle being damaged.
The truck that was recovered was previously reported stolen from Lloydminster, Alta., on Dec.1.
Sara Mcgillis (22) of Fishing Lake, Alta., Geneva Williams (25) of Fishing Lake, Alta., Colton Moyah (18) of Kehewin Cree Nation, Alta., and a 16-year-old male youth of Elizabeth Metis Settlement, Alta., were charged with various offences including:
- Assaulting a police officer

Moyah was remanded into custody following a judicial hearing and is scheduled to appear in St. Paul Provincial Court on Dec. 17, 2020.
After judicial hearings, McGillis and Williams were released and both are scheduled to appear in St. Paul Provincial Court on Jan. 7, 2020.
The 16-year-old youth who cannot be named in accordance with the Youth Criminal Justice Act, is scheduled to appear in Cold Lake Provincial Court on Dec. 16, 2020.
