Lacombe Police Service called to scene, arrested the male after a short foot pursuit

  • Feb. 13, 2017 4:00 p.m.

On Feb. 13th at approximately 1:55 am Lacombe Police received a complaint of a suspicious male entering and going through vehicles on Cameron Close in Lacombe.

Police arrived on scene at approximately 1:57 am and observed a male wearing dark clothing start to run southbound from Cameron Close across Woodland Drive.

Police immediately contained the area where the male was last seen running and after a short foot pursuit the lone male was taken into custody.

Further investigation resulted in the 23 year old Male from Lacombe being charged with:

– Theft Under $5000 (2 counts)

– Mischief (2 counts)

– Possession of Break In Instruments

The Male was released from custody with his next court appearance scheduled for April 7th in Red Deer Provincial Court.

This investigation is ongoing and Police are requesting that if anyone has information regarding this event to call the Lacombe Police at 403-782-3279.

“This is another great example of the benefits of having our own Police dispatch for our citizens of Lacombe” states Acting Chief Lorne Blumhagen. “An alert citizen contacted our dispatch and while providing the details to our dispatcher, the dispatcher was able to relay this information to our members on the road which resulted in our members arriving on scene within 2 minutes and locating and arresting the individual committing these offences”.

“We would like to thank those citizens involved who called in this suspicious activity as it resulted in this male being located, arrested and charged” added Blumhagen.

Lacombe Police Service encourages all citizens to report any suspicious activities in their neighbourhoods, day or night, to assist us in reducing crime and apprehending those responsible.
