Mounties from Cold Lake are saying two men are behind bars after multiple run-ins with the law across two provinces. Police say the first incident occurred on May 22nd when they were called to the Cold Lake First Nations after a drive-by shooting. A little sleuthing by mounties led them to file arrest warrants for 23-year-old Cody Sylvester Janvier-Charland and 20-year-old Laine Soloway-Martial.
On May 23rd another drive-by shooting had taken place, this time on the Elizabeth Metis Settlement. By May 25th mounties in Kelowna, B.C mounties had arrested Janvier-Charland after a chase featuring spike strips ended with his truck getting stuck in the mud.
On May 29th a grey Ford truck was spotted driving dangerously near a school on the Elizabeth Metis Settlement. Cold Lake RCMP members gave chase with the Elk Point RCMP helping out. Mounties were able to ram and stop the truck but not before the driver attempted to hit an officer who was trying to deploy a spike strip. Soloway-Martial was arrested as well as a 17-year-old man who cannot be named.
The two now face serious charges that include attempted murder without a firearm and possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose.
