The morning of June 5th, RCMP attended a north Red Deer business in response to a report of suspicious activity. RCMP located a suspect still at the business and determined he was driving a white Trailblazer that had been reported stolen. The suspect gave police a false name, and then provided a second false name when RCMP determined the first one was false. RCMP quickly determined his correct identity and found that the suspect was wanted on ten outstanding warrants out of Red Deer for a number of persons crimes and numerous charges for failing to comply with probation.

In addition to his warrants, a 29-year-old man faces the charges of possession of stolen property over $5,000 and two counts of resisting and obstructing a peace officer.

At the time of her arrest, she was found to be breaching her court-imposed curfew conditions.

At 3:30 p.m. on June 4th, RCMP were called to a south Red Deer store in response to a report of an alleged shoplifter in custody. RCMP arrested the suspect after determining he was in possession of a suitcase containing stolen electronics. During the arrest, police officers found the suspect was also in possession of a knife and a BB gun, in violation of court-imposed weapons bans.

At 6 p.m. on June 2nd, RCMP responded to a report of a suspicious vehicle parked in a South Hill parking lot. RCMP confirmed the Jeep had been reported stolen and arrested the suspect inside without incident. The suspect was found to be in possession of two baggies of drugs that tested positive for combinations of methamphetamine, cocaine, fentanyl, amphetamines and morphine.

A 26-year-old man faces the charges of possession of stolen property, failing to comply with probation and two counts of possession of Schedule I substance.

The afternoon of June 2nd, RCMP on bike patrol in downtown Red Deer located a suspect in a store who police officers recognized was violating his court-imposed curfew condition. The suspect resisted arrest and was taken into custody after a brief struggle.

RCMP seized several knives and other tools the suspect was prohibited from possessing, as well as what is believed to be methamphetamine and marijuana.

In addition to his warrants, a 25-year-old man faces the charges of resisting and obstructing a peace officer, 11 counts of failing to comply with conditions and three counts of possession schedule II substance.
