Male arrested following lengthy PDS search: Innisfail RCMP

Red Deer County, Alberta – The Innisfail RCMP made an arrest of a male on Nov. 19 following a lengthy pursuit through the rural area, which culminated in the vehicle crashing in a ravine and Police Dog Services being deployed.

Shortly after midnight, Innisfail RCMP were alerted to a suspect vehicle which had evaded earlier apprehension by Sundre RCMP members. The vehicle was located in the Dickson Dam area by a patrolling Innisfail member, and it again failed to stop. A pursuit followed. At the intersection of Range Road 21 and Township Road 360 the vehicle crashed through a fence and drove over a steep embankment. The driver fled on foot. Assistance came from Sundre, Olds and Red Deer members, along with Police Dog Services.


Despite efforts by Police Dog Services for over three hours, the male was not initially located. Neighbourhood enquiries were conducted and properties were searched. At 8:45 a.m., the RCMP received a call of a suspicious male near Range Road 15, and the RCMP located and arrested the male, who was released later in the day.

The investigation continues by Innisfail RCMP and supporting units to determine the male’s connection to the vehicle, and the vehicle’s possible connection to an earlier incident in Rocky Mountain House. Further details will not be provided by the RCMP at this time.
