Edmonton Police Arrest Woman Twice in a Matter of Hours

Edmonton police had to arrest the same woman twice, mere hours apart, in two separate stolen vehicle investigations.

The first case was on the afternoon of December 8, when police were called to the area of 27 Street and 118 Avenue to assist Emergency Medical Services with the woman.

When officers arrived, they discovered that the woman was in possession of a stolen vehicle. She was arrested, charged, and released soon after.

However, at around 3 a.m. the following morning, police got a report of a stolen Lexus from a parking lot near 169 Avenue and 127 Street. When officers arrived they saw the vehicle driving recklessly through the parking lot. Police were eventually able to stop the vehicle and arrest the driver.

Officers determined that the driver they arrested was the same woman arrested just hours before. This time she was remanded into custody.

“This is just one example of the type of recidivism that our patrol members are dealing with regularly; circumstances such as this drive a great deal of the calls that they respond to,” said Northwest Branch Superintendent Kellie Morgan.

Raven Patterson, 26, was charged with possession of stolen property, theft of a motor vehicle, flight from police officers, and dangerous operation of a vehicle.

Patterson’s court date is scheduled for December 19.
