Red Deer, Alberta – A woman and two men face multiple charges after Red Deer RCMP located them in a stolen truck in Red Deer and followed the trio to Penhold; the woman was arrested in the truck and the two men were arrested after they attempted to flee police on foot.

RCMP located the stolen red Dodge truck in south Red Deer shortly before 9 am on May 11, and tracked it as it moved south on Gaetz Avenue and then onto the QEII and into Penhold. RCMP did not engage emergency equipment at any time due to public safety concerns, instead deploying a number of police resources to contain the truck once it came to a stop in an alley behind Hendersen Crescent in Penhold.

The woman was removed from the truck by police officers and a second man was located a short distance away. As Police Dog Services were being deployed, the third man, who had been hiding in a nearby yard, was also located.
