Suspicious vehicle rams Bonnyville RCMP in attempt to flee

Two people have been arrested and charged after they rammed the Bonnyville RCMP in a stolen truck.

On November 14, at 2:20 a.m., the Mounties from Bonnyville were conducting proactive patrols and noticed a suspicious vehicle parked running in a local fast food parking lot.

Sgt. Sarah Parke is the Detachment Commander for the Bonnyville RCMP.

“Members covertly approached the truck which was confirmed to be stolen and noted two occupants sleeping inside,” Sgt. Parke told Lakeland Connect. “As officers were getting into position to arrest the occupants, they woke up and put the stolen truck in gear and rammed one of the police vehicles in an attempt to escape.”

The driver of the stolen truck then quickly lost control and struck another vehicle in the parking lot effectively disabling the stolen truck.

“The two occupants were then arrested without further incident and remanded into custody,” Sgt. Parke said. “Police located an improperly stored firearm in the vehicle.”
