Two individuals charged following stolen vehicle saga in Vermilion

Two individuals face many charges after Vermilion RCMP apprehended them concerning a stolen vehicle traced back to the St. Paul area. The incident, which unfolded on February 27, culminated in the arrest of Jordan Scanie, 28, and Brittney Gosselin-Redcrow, 19

The Vermilion RCMP, conducting routine patrols, spotted a vehicle reported stolen from the St. Paul region around 2:15 p.m. “Members attempted to conduct a traffic stop on the vehicle, but the vehicle failed to pull over and stop for police,” the Vermilion RCMP reported. A subsequent pursuit was not initiated, but the vehicle was found abandoned in a field near Highway 41 and Highway 16.  


With collaborative efforts from Kitscoty and Vermilion RCMP, a containment was swiftly set up in the vicinity, leading to the successful arrest of both suspects without further incident.  


Sgt. Corey Buckingham, Vermilion Detachment Commander, commended the proactive measures taken by the officers involved. “This is a good example of where a proactive traffic stop led to the recovery of a stolen vehicle and apprehension of the two offenders,” Sgt. Buckingham stated. “Kudos to the members involved, including the embers from neighbouring detachments who attended to assist us.”

Meanwhile, Scanie underwent a Judicial Interim release hearing and has been released from custody. He is set to appear on March 18 at the Alberta Court of Justice in Vermilion.
