Red Deer RCMP arrest three after police vehicle rammed

Two men and a woman face charges after the stolen truck they were driving rammed a Red Deer RCMP police vehicle the afternoon of October 25; the collision caused damage to a residential fence, a garage and a power transformer, resulting in power outages in the Johnstone area.

RCMP were on patrol in north Red Deer at approximately 5:30 pm on October 25 when they located the stolen truck driving in the area of Jewel Street and James Street. When the truck entered an alley behind James Street, police initiated a traffic stop; the suspect truck, a Ford F150, rammed the police vehicle in an attempt to flee; that collision caused significant structural damage to a fence and garage at one residence. The truck then became stuck on the transformer box, causing the neighbourhood to lose power for several hours while City of Red Deer staff repaired the damage. RCMP arrested two at the truck, and arrested a third suspect after a brief foot pursuit. RCMP continue to investigate the identity of a fourth suspect who fled the scene and was not located.

No police officers or civilians were injured in the collisions; the female suspect sustained minor injuries and was treated at hospital before being released into RCMP custody. RCMP seized fentanyl during the arrests. The truck, a Ford F150, had been reported stolen out of Blackfalds; the license plate on the truck had been reported stolen out of Fort McMurray.

21 year old Nickolas Tweedle was wanted on outstanding warrants for failing to comply with probation and failing to appear in court; he now faces the following additional charges:

  • Criminal Code 355(a) – Possession of stolen property over $5,000
  • Criminal Code 355(b) – Possession of stolen property under $5,000
  • Criminal Code 249.1(1) – Flight from police
  • Criminal Code 733.1(1) – Fail to comply with probation order
  • TSA 54(1)(a) – Drive without insurance
  • TSA 52(1)(a) – Drive without registration
  • TSA 94(1)(a) – Drive while unauthorized

Tweedle made his first appearance in court in Red Deer today and is scheduled to appear next on October 31.

25 year old Trent Tyler Roan faces the following charges:

  • Criminal Code 127(1) – Breach of court order X 2

Roan made his first appearance in court in Red Deer on Friday and is scheduled to appear next on November 1.

23 year old Shyla Loustel faces the following charges:

  • CDSA 4(1) – Possession of Schedule I substance
  • Criminal Code 129(a) – Resist/ obstruct peace officer

Loustel is scheduled to appear in court in Red Deer on October 30.

Red Deer RCMP seize drugs, guns and cash in major multi-agency bust

Red Deer RCMP, along with other police agencies, arrested four people and laid 17 charges following a multi-agency investigation, which led to a series of drug seizures in Red Deer, Calgary, Rocky Mountain House and Carstairs. 

Red Deer RCMP began their investigation into drug trafficking activity in Red Deer in March, 2019, and that investigation quickly led to ties with drug trafficking activity in surrounding communities. The Red Deer RCMP General Investigation Section unit collaborated with Calgary Police Service, Rocky Mountain RCMP and Didsbury RCMP to execute a series of coordinated search warrants on June 7, 2019. 

As a result of those search warrants, the following were seized by police:

In Red Deer:

·         306 g cocaine

·         10 fentanyl pills

·         $17,270 Canadian currency 

In Calgary: 

·         825 fentanyl pills

·         75 Oxy pills (counterfeit)

·         1.465 kg cannabis

·         609 g cocaine

·         19 g fentanyl powder

·         521 g of methamphetamine

·         254 grams of MDMA

·         1.78 kg of suspected phenacetin (Super Buff)

·         Rifle

·         Shotgun

·         $48,800 Canadian currency

In Rocky Mountain House:

·         $4,070 Canadian currency 

In Carstairs: 

·         $4,100 Canadian currency

·         104 g cannabis

·         26 g fentanyl

·         32 g methamphetamine

·         16 g crack

·         16 g heroin

·         Rifle

·         Shotgun

“This is a significant drugs seizure for Red Deer and Central Alberta,” said Superintendent Gerald Grobmeier, Officer in Charge of the Red Deer RCMP. “This seizure was the direct result of a coordinated effort across partner agencies, which demonstrates the effectiveness of shared intelligence between police agencies. We’re all working toward the same goals of crime reduction, and we see many of the same repeat offenders crossing jurisdictions, so it’s imperative that we work smarter than the criminals.”

As a result of the coordinated efforts of this investigation, four individuals were arrested and 17 charges were laid:

Robert Leslie Amency (45) of Calgary has been charged with:

·         Possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking (x5)

·         Possession of cannabis for the purpose of selling

·         Possession of stolen property over $5000

·         Unauthorized possession of a prohibited weapon (2)

Robert Amency remains in custody after a judicial hearing and will appear in Red Deer Provincial Court on July 4, 2019. 

Michelle Florence Geeregat (32) of Sylvan Lake has been charged with:

·         Possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking 

·         Possession of stolen property under $5,000

Michelle Geeregat was released from custody after a judicial hearing and will appear in Red Deer Provincial Court on June 27, 2019. 

Andy Lau (21) of Calgary has been charged with:

·         Possession of a controlled substance

·         Possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking

Edmonton – On June 18 at approximately 7 p.m., the Edmonton International Airport Detachment responded to a call for service in relation to a male in distress in the airport parkade.

During the course of the investigation, it was revealed that the 41-year-old male from Edmonton was wanted on an outstanding arrest warrant. He was taken into RCMP custody and transported to the airport detachment. While in custody, the male became extremely agitated and the responding members were required to restrain him and take him through the airport to a police vehicle for transport to an Edmonton hospital.

During transport, an incident arose that required RCMP to stop roadside to subdue the male, resulting in a Conducted Energy Weapon being deployed. Edmonton Police Service responded to assist, along with EMS. Once the situation was under control, members were able to continue transport the hospital.

The investigation into this incident continues by both the RCMP and Alberta Serious Incident Response Team. No further information will be made available by RCMP.
