Red Deer, Alberta – Red Deer RCMP arrested 35 year old Quentin Lee Strawberry after two brief foot pursuits in the area of 55 Street shortly after noon on September 6.

At the time of his arrest, Strawberry was wanted on numerous outstanding warrants for firearms and assault charges. He now faces further charges of robbery, assault and failing to comply with court-ordered conditions with regard to a carjacking and robbery that occurred in Red Deer on August 7.
