Rocky Mountain House RCMP lay Robbery and Firearms charges

Rocky Mountain House, Alberta – RCMP have laid several charges against three different males following a lengthy incident which started with a firearms disturbance at a residence, followed by a pursuit, a robbery then another pursuit.

On August 20, 2017, several males brandished firearms at a residence on the Sunchild First Nation, threatened the occupants, then left in a vehicle. Rocky Mountain House RCMP members responded from the Sunchild Nation and located the suspect vehicle. The vehicle fled from police, who pursued the vehicle north of the Sunchild Nation. The suspect vehicle rammed a police vehicle during the pursuit, and after fleeing the scene, the suspects attempted to steal a vehicle in the area, but were unsuccessful. A short while later, the suspects rolled their vehicle into the ditch and departed unharmed.
