Lloydminster, Alberta – At approximately 2:10 a.m. on Sunday, July 12, 2020, Lloydminster RCMP Police Dog Services attempted to stop a stolen vehicle in the area of 44 Street and 45 Avenue. The suspect vehicle proceeded to flee from police, travelling eastbound out of the city. Police did not pursue the vehicle, and determined shortly after that the suspect vehicle turned around and began to travel westbound into Lloydminster again. Police were able to successfully deploy a tire deflation device, however the vehicle still failed to stop. A second tire deflation device was deployed west of Lloydminster, and the suspect vehicle continued travelling in a dangerous manner before the driver abandoned it in an area near Tulliby Lake.

Lloydminster RCMP along with Lloydminster and St. Paul Police Dog Services, Kitscoty RCMP and Vermilion RCMP, were able to arrest the driver at this location.
