Innisfail, Alberta – A report of an attempted home invasion on Feb. 18 led to the arrest of six property crime suspects and the recovery of a substantial amount of stolen property by Innisfail RCMP.
The Innisfail RCMP responded in the evening of Feb. 18 to the attempted home invasion near downtown Innisfail. Two males were reported as trying to break into the home while in possession of weapons.
The two suspect males were identified by the RCMP. On Feb. 19 Innisfail RCMP with the assistance of the Central Alberta District Crime Reduction Unit and RCMP Air Services attended a property on the C+E Trail in Red Deer County, north of Penhold, to arrest the suspects. One was arrested without incident and the second fled in a Ford F350, with two other occupants, recently stolen out of Saskatchewan. A pursuit ensued, and efforts were made to deploy tire deflation devices, but they were not successful.
The F350 travelled throughout the central Alberta area to a location near Pigeon Lake, where three occupants abandoned the F350 and were picked up by a second Ford dually pickup truck. The dually was under observation as it travelled back into Red Deer where all 5 occupants were eventually arrested at two different locations in the city with the assistance of the Red Deer City RCMP, Innisfail Integrated Traffic Unit and the RCMP Police Dog Services.
On Feb. 20, Innisfail RCMP with the assistance of RCMP Calgary Auto Theft and Blackfalds GIS executed a search warrant at the C+E Trail property. The RCMP seized items related to many property crime investigations throughout Central Alberta including: stolen firearms, ammunition, a stolen dirt bike, stolen tools, break-in tools and other weapons. The dually was examined by the Calgary Auto Theft Unit and found to be a cloned (different VIN) vehicle that was stolen 3 years ago from a ranch near Strathmore.
