Didsbury RCMP are looking for a man they say is armed and dangerous.

Three arrests were made on Jan. 23 and the fourth suspect remains at large in relation to a kidnapping investigation, Mounties say.

Just after 6 p.m. that day, police responded to a complaint of a male that had been taken at gunpoint in Didsbury. The victim was allegedly threatened and ordered to pay a sum of money so he wouldn't face any harm.

Members from Didsbury and Olds detachments located the victim at a rural location west of Olds and made the three arrests. A search warrant was executed on a travel trailer and five guns, including a sawed-off shotgun, were seized.

Justin Anglet, 19, of Olds has been charged with Kidnapping with a Firearm, Extortion with a Firearm, Possession of stolen property, Possession of Methamphetamine, and eight counts of failing to comply with conditions.  
 
Donald Martin, 39, of Olds has been charged with Kidnapping with a Firearm, five counts of Unauthorized possession of a firearm, and Possession of a Prohibited Firearm.
 
Jacob Donkin, 19, of Olds has been charged with Kidnapping with a Firearm, Possession of Stolen Property, and fail to comply with conditions
 
Now, an arrest warrant has been issued for 32-year-old Mitchell Lewis Engler of Olds on charges of kidnapping, extortion, possession of a firearm, possession of stolen property, and uttering threats. Didsbury RCMP are asking for the public's assistance to locate him. Engler is armed and dangerous, police say.

Anyone with information on his whereabouts is urged not to approach him but to contact the Didsbury RCMP at 403-335-3381 or your local law enforcement agency. If you want to remain anonymous, you can contact Crime Stoppers by phone at 1.800.222.8477 (TIPS).
