RCMP make arrests for outstanding warrants

  • Oct. 20, 2016 4:23 p.m.

Red Deer RCMP have been busy the past two days locating and arresting a number of people who were wanted on numerous outstanding warrants.

Shortly after 3:30 p.m. on Oct. 18th, RCMP located a suspicious vehicle in a residential parking lot and arrested 27-year-old Debra Lynn Pidhirney and 34-year-old Francois Joseph Alexander, both of who were wanted on warrants.

Pidhirney was wanted on 18 warrants including multiple charges for possession of stolen property and failing to comply with conditions, assault with a weapon and several weapons charges; she was further found to be breaching two court-imposed conditions at the time of her arrest.

Alexander was wanted on three warrants for possession of stolen property and failing to comply with conditions and fraud.

Just before 5 p.m. on Oct. 18th, Red Deer RCMP located and arrested 24-year-old Todd Kenneth Deschambeault, who was wanted on four warrants for failing to comply with court-ordered conditions.

On Oct. 19th at 1 a.m., RCMP located a suspicious vehicle in a hotel parking lot and subsequently arrested 34-year-old Darren Christopher Ray. Ray was wanted on 15 warrants out of Blackfalds, Red Deer and Innisfail for charges including five counts of possession of drugs for the purpose of trafficking, four counts of possession of stolen property, unauthorized possession of a firearm, resisting/obstructing police, failing to attend court and three counts of failing to comply with conditions.

Ray now faces an additional Criminal Code charge for breaching court-imposed conditions.

“As part of our Project Pinpoint initiative, we continue to aggressively focus on prolific offenders who continue to engage in criminal behaviour,” said Insp. Gerald Grobmeier of the Red Deer RCMP. “We’re checking to ensure they’re complying with conditions that have been imposed on them by the courts, and we’re putting them back in jail when they refuse to do so.”
