Beaverlodge RCMP locate suspect in break-in with assistance of Hythe Citizens on Patrol

Beaverlodge, Alberta – On Feb. 2nd, 2021, at 12:14 a.m., Beaverlodge RCMP received a 911 call from a construction site reporting a trespasser on their property near Hythe, Alta.

Beaverlodge RCMP attended and found evidence of a recent break, enter, and theft. The Beaverlodge RCMP officer patrolled and met the Hythe Citizens on Patrol, who were quick to confirm the suspect vehicle, a white pickup, was in the area and had departed southbound. The officer was able to use this key information to locate the suspect vehicle and initiate a traffic stop; however the suspect vehicle failed to immediately stop. The suspect vehicle went off-road into the ditch a short distance later and 20 and 26 year-old males were arrested on scene for flight from a police officer.

“These results would not be possible if it were not for the quick 911 call from the employee at the construction site with a detailed description, along with the observations from the Hythe Citizens on Patrol,” says Sgt. Ash Browne, Detachment Commander of Beaverlodge RCMP. “By working together, this case was solved quickly and this offender is now before the courts.”
