Cold Lake RCMP has charged three people with multiple Criminal Code offenses after they were in possession of both firearms and a stolen vehicle.
On Jan. 15, 2022, Cold Lake RCMP received information that a stolen vehicle had been tracked for several hours by GPS after having been stolen the night prior from a business parking area in Bonnyville, Alta. The suspects in the vehicle were said to be armed with firearms following an altercation at a residence in Fishing Lake, Alta.
When the vehicle stopped moving at a residence on the Elizabeth Metis Settlement RCMP officers approached the vehicle. The vehicle fled to the end of the driveway where it stopped and reversed into a nearby Police Dog Service Vehicle.
The car then proceeded to flee the area but ran over a Tire Deflation Device while doing so. Shortly after, the vehicle was discovered abandoned after it had become stuck in the snow with its tires deflated.
The suspects were tracked down to a nearby residence where witnesses advised the suspects had fled the vehicle with firearms.
RCMP established containment of the area and called for the assistance of the RCMP ERT.
