BLACKFALDS- On January 11, at around 4 a.m. during routine patrols of the Gasoline Alley hotel district, officers located a vehicle that had earlier fled from RCMP.

The suspects in the vehicle were arrested for various offences.

One of those taken into custody was wanted on a Canada wide warrant.

Multiple charges have been laid including, possession of break in tools, weapons and trafficking in controlled substances. 

Later in the morning, as a result of the public contacting police about a suspicious vehicle, RCMP were able to locate the occupied stolen vehicle and the occupants were arrested.

They face charges of possession of the stolen vehicle, as well as weapons and possession of controlled substance offences.

In both cases, the charges have yet to be sworn before the court, so the names of those arrested will not be released at this time.
