On Oct. 20th, Lacombe Police responded to a report that suspicious individuals were attempting to break into vehicles and homes in the area of Henners Road in Lacombe.

Police were informed that a man and woman had been observed exiting a parked vehicle, a white Dodge Ram truck and then proceeded to walk down the street and attempt to enter parked vehicles and the front doors of several residences.

Police investigated and as a result have arrested Sean David Porter and Natasha Verna Clark of Red Deer.

Porter and Clark have both been charged with possession of stolen property over $5,000, possession of break-in tools, attempt to break-in to a dwelling house and two counts of possession of a weapon dangerous to the public.

In addition, Clark has also been charged with possession of a controlled substance and six counts of breach of conditions.

Porter and Clark made their first appearance in Red Deer Provincial Court on Tuesday.

Both Porter and Clark will remain in custody until their next court appearance, scheduled for Oct. 29th.

Charges laid in June crash

At 1:06 a.m. on June 14th Lacombe Police Service, along with Lacombe Fire-Rescue Service and Lacombe EMS, responded to a two-vehicle collision on Hwy. 2A at 47 Ave.

The preliminary investigation had determined that a northbound pickup truck with seven occupants proceeded through a red light at a high rate of speed when it collided with a westbound pickup truck.

The impact caused the northbound pickup to roll over, and it came to rest on the CP railway tracks running parallel to Hwy. 2A.

While the westbound pickup sustained substantial damage, the lone male driver did not sustain any significant injuries, police said.

The 19-year-old male driver of the northbound pickup was initially transported to Red Deer Regional Hospital, then later flown by STARS to Foothills Hospital in Calgary. One other passenger also sustained serious injuries and was flown from the collision scene by STARS to the University of Alberta Hospital in Edmonton.

Two other passengers in the northbound pickup were transported to area hospitals by ground ambulance.

The three remaining passengers were treated by EMS for minor injuries at the scene and released. Railway traffic on the main CP Rail line was delayed for several hours as a result of the collision.

As a result of the investigation by the Lacombe Police Service, Trevor Michael Anderson of Lacombe was arrested on Oct. 9th and charged with impaired driving causing bodily harm, operating a motor vehicle with over 80 milligrams of alcohol causing bodily harm, dangerous operation of a motor vehicle causing bodily harm and dangerous driving.

Anderson was released on an appearance notice and will appear in Reed Deer Provincial Court on Nov. 18th.
