Leduc RCMP are investigating reports of mischief throughout rural areas of the community.
On Monday (Sep. 25), police received reports of an erratic driver in the area of Range Road 224.
Police located the suspect parked on the side of the road. When officers approached the vehicle, it fled the scene. Police believe the vehicle drove onto several rural properties in Leduc County, Camrose County, and Wetaskiwin County, damaging fences in the process.
Leduc RCMP were joined by Beaumont RCMP, Wetaskiwin RCMP, Camrose RCMP, and the RCMP Police Dog Services to locate the suspect vehicle, which they found stuck in a field in Wetaskiwin County.
There were two people inside of the vehicle, and they were both arrested. Police are not currently looking for other suspects.
“We would like to thank the public who reported these individuals,” says constable Cheri-Lee Smith. “The information we received from the public was crucial and led us to locate and arrest the suspects.”
Officers are continuing to investigate this string of mischief and believe that the suspects may have damaged other properties in the area.
Anyone with information is asked to contact the Leduc RCMP at 780-980-7200.
