Slave Lake, Alta - On May 27 at 3:00 AM, RCMP members were conducting patrols through the southwest quadrant of town when they noticed an individual unloading a side-by-side from a trailer in Fournier Place. Members approached the individual who fled from the scene in a dark coloured pickup truck at a high rate of speed. Given the nature of the occurrence and concern for public safety, RCMP members did not chase after the truck. The side-by-side and trailer were left behind.
Investigation into the matter found that the trailer had been reported stolen in High Level while the side-by-side had been stolen in Slave Lake, unbeknownst to the owner. A search of the side-by-side found a loaded prohibited firearm.
RCMP continue to investigate this matter. The suspect vehicle is described as follows:
- Dark colored pickup truck. Possibly a Dodge Ram.
- Clean and very shiny.
- Black canopy covering the truck bed.
The suspect was last observed driving westbound on Highway 2 towards Widewater.
Investigation into this matter continues. Slave Lake RCMP are asking the public's assistance for any information in relation to this incident or identifying those responsible.
