Police advise that 47-year-old Michael Wayne Lamontagne has been arrested by Airdrie RCMP on Nov. 29th.

He was wanted on Alberta-wide warrants for the robbery of a woman at gunpoint on Nov. 11th.

The robbery occurred at 11 a.m. on Nov. 11th, when a man approached a woman as she exited her car in the West Park neighbourhood, demanding money and displaying a handgun. When the victim got back in her car and locked it, the suspect smashed the car window and took her backpack as she fled the vehicle through the passenger door. The victim was not injured, and the suspect ran from the scene on foot.

RCMP identified the male suspect within an hour of the robbery, when he and a female companion were caught on video in a convenience store, using the victim’s credit card; his female companion drove a truck that had been reported stolen out of Red Deer on Nov. 1st. RCMP recovered the stolen truck after it was abandoned in Gasoline Alley shortly after midnight on Nov. 12th.

Red Deer RCMP soon identified the female suspect and arrested her the afternoon of Nov. 17th. Diane Fiddler, 44, of Red Deer faces Criminal Code charges for possession of stolen property over $5,000, possession of stolen property under $5,000 and fraud under $5,000.

Red Deer RCMP continue to search for Lamontagne, who is wanted on warrants for armed robbery with a firearm, possession of a weapon contrary to a court order, possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose, and fraud under $5,000. Lamontagne is also wanted on a Canada-wide warrant for violating his parole.

Citizens are advised not to approach Lamontagne, as he may be in possession of a weapon.

If anyone sees Lamontagne or has information about his whereabouts, they are asked to contact the Red Deer RCMP at 403-343-5575. Those wishing to remain anonymous can call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or report it online at www.tipsubmit.com.
