RCMP Investigate youth fight(s) in Spruce Grove

Spruce Grove, Alberta – The Stony Plain/Spruce Grove/Enoch RCMP have responded to and are investigating complaints in relation to a so called youth “fight club” in the City of Spruce Grove. It is alleged that youth are using social media to announce locations throughout the City where they plan to fight. These posts/meeting(s) are also drawing spectators.

The RCMP are working in partnership with the Spruce Grove Enforcement Officers to monitor social media, and creating dialogue within our local high schools to deter students from participating/supporting these types of activities.

At this time the Stony Plain/Spruce Grove/Enoch RCMP would like to remind our young people and their families that participating in these types of activities could lead to criminal charges.

Having a youth criminal record may limit a person’s travel and job options. Any criminal record may prevent a person from getting into another country, no matter how minor the offence. Although the police will not give any employer information about a youth record, employers can ask that a young person complete a criminal record check in order to prove that they do not have a record.

If you have any information about this matter, please contact the Stony Plain RCMP at 780-968-7267. If you want to remain anonymous, you can contact crime stoppers by phone at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS), by internet at www.tipsubmit.com, or by SMS (www.crimestoppers.ab.ca for instructions). You do not have to reveal your identity to Crime Stoppers, and if you provide information to Crime Stoppers that leads to an arrest, the recovery of stolen property, and/or the seizure of illicit drugs, you may be eligible for a cash reward. Crime Stoppers does not subscribe to call display and the identity of the caller will remain anonymous.
