Red Deer RCMP arrest man in stolen truck

May 3, 2016 1:02 PM

Red Deer, Alberta – Red Deer RCMP arrested a man in a stolen truck on April 28, who was wanted on outstanding warrants.

Shortly before 4:30 pm on April 28, RCMP located a stolen white Dodge Ram that sped through a number of controlled intersections when police approached. Police did not initiate a pursuit but tracked the truck as it moved through Riverside Meadows to Riverside Drive, then onto 67 Street and into the Pines neighbourhood. The male driver and female youth passenger then abandoned the truck and attempted to flee police on foot; both were taken into custody without incident at that point. The truck had been stolen out of Bentley in late March and the license plate had been stolen out of Red Deer on April 28.

31 year old Michael Wayne Campbell has been charged with:

  • Criminal Code 355(a) – Possession of stolen property over $5,000
  • Criminal Code 351(1) – Possession of break-in instruments
  • Criminal Code 145(3) – Fail to comply with recognizance

Campbell was also wanted on outstanding warrants out of Blackfalds. He was remanded in custody and made his first court appearance on April 29. He will appear in court again in Red Deer on May 6 at 9:30 am.
