Red Deer RCMP look for Michael Lamontagne on Alberta-wide warrant

Red Deer, Alberta – Red Deer RCMP are looking for public assistance to locate 47 year old Michael Wayne Lamontagne of Red Deer, who is wanted on Alberta-wide warrants for the robbery of a woman at gunpoint on November 11.

The robbery occurred at 11 am on November 11, 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 November 1. RCMP recovered the stolen truck after it was abandoned in Gasoline Alley shortly after midnight on November 12.

Red Deer RCMP soon identified the female suspect and arrested her the afternoon of November 17. 44 year old Diane Fiddler 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. She will appear in court in Red Deer on November 30 at 9:30 am.

Red Deer RCMP continue to search for 47 year old Michael 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 Michael Lamontagne if you see him, as he may be in possession of a weapon.
