Two suspects face hefty charges after arrests in Innisfail

Red Deer man and Innisfail woman charged in incident

On July 31st at 1 a.m. Innisfail RCMP while on routine patrol observed a white 2005 Ford SRW parked at the Innisfail Fas Gas. The vehicle began driving south bound and RCMP attempted a traffic stop with the truck. When police approached the truck the driver sped away at a high rate of speed in a residential area. Police did not pursue due to public safety reason.

Shortly after police observed the same truck drive in the opposite lane and strike a curb, eventually disabling the vehicle. The driver and passenger fled the scene on foot and were apprehended by RCMP members. The Ford truck was confirmed as stolen.

The investigation continued which led police to enter an investigation into the possession of a number of stolen identification cards, bank cards, and cheques. A number of charges have been laid.

James Riley, 26, of Red Deer, has been charged with possession of stolen property exceeding $5,000, possession of a controlled substance, three counts of failing to comply with a probation order, failing to stop for police, two counts of dangerous driving, two counts of obstructing police, two counts of resisting arrest, driving an uninsured motor vehicle and two counts of failing to remain at the scene of a collision.
