Violent Crime Spree Leads to Arrests

RCMP-1205Airdrie, AB: Airdrie RCMP have charged two individuals believed to be responsible for a violent crime spree in the area which began in the early morning hours of September 8th, 2016.


Serena Liversuch and Dana Motyer were arrested after midnight that morning after being found in possession of a stolen property. The two were subsequently released pending court.

Later that day at approximately four thirty p.m. Airdrie RCMP were called to a motel located just off of Edmonton Trail in response to a stabbing incident, where a male victim was injured. The two believed to be responsible were Liversuch and Motyer, who fled the scene. While evading police, the pair obtained meals from a restaurant in the area of Main Street. At the restaurant, Motyer is alleged to have assaulted the restaurant manager who confronted the two about paying, but the accused left without paying. Airdrie RCMP advised neighboring Calgary Police Service of the occurrences.

The two then made their way into Calgary, where at approximately 9:40 p.m. they were arrested by Calgary Police Service, who were responding to a stolen vehicle complaint. The two were found in possession of a second stolen vehicle and arrested by Calgary Police Service.

Liversuch, 31, and Motyer, 33, both of no fixed address, were transferred to Airdrie where they were charged in relation to their Airdrie offences of Forcible Confinement, Aggravated Assault, Armed Robbery and Uttering Threats. Judicial interim release hearings were conducted and a justice of the peace released the two on bail. Both Moyter and Liversuch are to appear in Airdrie Provincial Court on September 29, 2016.
