On April 4th, 2017 at approximately 11:00 am , Blackfalds RCMP spotted a stolen Ford F350 truck parked on RR273. As Police approached the truck, the driver ran on foot into a field. A brief search of the area resulted in the 30 year old driver being arrested without incident.

The truck was reported stolen from Ponoka.

A short time after the arrest and recovery of the stolen Ford truck Blackfalds RCMP were dispatched to a suspicious person complaint at Princess Auto in gasoline alley.  Police attended the area looking for three individuals and a white Nissan Pathfinder.

While Police were conducting patrols in the area, a white Nissan SUV was spotted travelling west on Mackenzie Road. The SUV continued west through the intersection and collided with a white Dodge minivan on Highway 2A which had been travelling northbound.  When police arrive on scene the 27 year old female driver of the Pathfinder was attempting to force her way into another motorist’s vehicle.  The driver was arrested at the scene and the Pathfinder was determined to have been stolen from Blackfalds earlier in the morning.

Both parties involved in the collision were transported to Red Deer hospital with minor injuries.

Police do not believe the stolen vehicle occurrences are related.
