August 11, 2016 11:41 AM

Red Deer, Alberta – A Red Deer man is facing charges after he drove his SUV into a house on Lancaster Drive in the early morning of August 7 then fled the scene on foot.

The collision occurred shortly before 4 am on August 7 when a silver Nissan SUV struck a house on Lancaster Drive, damaging the front of the home and breaking a window before rolling onto its side. No one was injured in the collision, and witnesses observed the driver leaving the scene on foot. Police immediately contained the area and called Police Dog Services out to track the suspect; he was located in the area of 32 Street and Lawford Avenue and taken into custody without incident.

The 24 year old male driver was wanted on outstanding warrants out of Camrose, and now faces additional charges in Red Deer for the events of August 7. His name cannot be released at this time as the charges have not been sworn before the courts. RCMP continue to investigate and will issue an update when those charges have been sworn.
