BREAKING: Red Deer RCMP set up containment downtown

Update: Three suspects in custody; police continue to search for fourth suspect

  • Feb. 21, 2017 8:40 p.m.

Red Deer RCMP have three suspects in custody and continue to search for a fourth after the group fled from a stolen white Nissan SUV following a three-car collision in downtown Red Deer shortly after 1 p.m. today.

RCMP continue to ask for the public’s cooperation in avoiding the green space around Pioneer Lodge in the Parkvale neighbourhood, as they continue their search for the fourth suspect, a man wearing a blue hoodie.

The stolen SUV was involved in a gas and dash shortly before noon today, and had fled police earlier this morning; RCMP located it again in the area of 43rd St. and 49th Ave. after it collided with two other vehicles and was abandoned by its occupants.

RCMP arrested three suspects within blocks of the collision scene – two men and a woman – after they each fled in different directions.

Traffic in the area of Gaetz Avenue and 37th St. was impacted for less than an hour, as was traffic at the collision scene. The public was further impacted as police officers stationed at various trail heads stopped citizens from entering the park system in the areas being searched.

Fortunately, no one was injured in the downtown collision. The Nissan truck had been reported stolen out of Red Deer on Feb. 16th.

RCMP thank the public for their patience during traffic disruptions, and for their continued cooperation as police search for the final suspect.

Citizens are advised not to engage with any suspicious person or activity but to call RCMP immediately at 403-343-5575 with any information.

RCMP will issue an update as more details become available and charges have been sworn before the courts.
