Dual chase ends with three charged near Frog Lake

Mounties say two men are now in custody after a chase near Frog Lake. Police say on April 2nd they were tracking down a pair of men wanted on previous charges. That’s when they spotted one of the men driving a car stolen during a robbery in Frog lake a few days earlier. A brief chase featuring the RCMP helicopter led mounties to the second wanted man in a different stolen vehicle.

Mounties chased the two suspects around the area. They were able to get one vehicle stopped in a field and arrested the driver. The other vehicle later ran over a spike strip and came to a stop at a residence just off Highway 897. Mounties say they caught the second driver despite the efforts of a woman at the home who tried to stop police.

36-year-old Albert Smith of Frog Lake is now facing charges including robbery as well as flight from police. The 17-year-old driver of the second vehicle faces a slew of charges related to other incidents in Elk Point and Frog Lake. Both are staying in police custody.

The 34-year-old woman who tried to stop mounties faces charges including obstructing a police officer. She’ll see St. Paul court on May 23rd.
