Airdrie RCMP QEII Traffic Unit on scene of collision on QEII – Update #2

Carstairs, Alta. –  On July 29, 2020 at 7:21 a.m., Didsbury RCMP responded to an incident of a suspicious person in a vehicle outside of a residence in Carstairs. The adult male was located and fled on foot when police arrived.

The suspect then broke into a nearby residence and started a van in the attached garage. Police were in the driver’s seat attempting to remove the suspect while the van exited the garage at a high rate of speed, striking the garage. The suspect broke free from police and fled Carstairs eastbound on Highway 581 and continued southbound on Highway 2.

Additional RCMP units from Innisfail, Olds and Airdrie were called to assist as the suspect was crossing the center median and travelling southbound in the northbound lane which forced multiple civilian vehicles to leave the roadway and avoid head-on collisions.

A roadblock was set up by police on the northbound traffic lane near the Highway 72 overpass. The suspect continued southbound in the northbound lane and upon nearing the roadblock made an evasive move, colliding with several police vehicles before entered the ditch. He was arrested without incident and was assessed at the scene by EMS. Police transported the suspect to the hospital for further assessment as a precaution.

Three RCMP officers were assessed at scene by EMS. Two had suffered minor injuries; however, they were not transported to hospital.

Kyle Robert Meckler (35) of Sylvan Lake, Alta., has been charged with 18 Criminal Code offences and two offences under the Traffic Safety Act:

  • Break and enter into a dwelling
  • Attempted theft of a motor vehicle
  • Possession of stolen property over $5000
  • Dangerous operation of a conveyance (x2)
  • Operation while prohibited
  • Flight from peace officer
  • Fail to stop after accident
  • Resist arrest
  • Escape lawful custody
  • Fail to comply with conditions (x8)
  • Operate uninsured motor vehicle (TSA) (x2)

Following a judicial hearing, Meckler was remanded into custody and will be appearing in Calgary Provincial Court today.

As this matter is now before the courts no further information will be released.

Didsbury RCMP are asking anyone who may have dash cam footage related to this incident to please contact Didsbury RCMP at 403-335-3381 or your local police.

Innisfail and Sundre RCMP detachments kept busy by rowdy party goers

Innisfail and Sundre RCMP detachments kept busy by rowdy party goers

Red Deer County, Alta –  Innisfail and Sundre RCMP detachments were kept busy on the weekend responding to multiple complaints in the Garrington Bridge area in Red Deer County.  This area is a rural location that is West of Bowden Alberta on highway 587 near range road 43.  In total on July 25th 2020 RCMP responded to 11 calls for service between the hours of 7 pm – 7 am the following day.

The calls for service ranged from damaged property, driving complaints, liquor offences, stolen property, uttering threats, and one report of possession of a weapon dangerous to public peace.  While RCMP were responding to complaints and attempting to keep the peace, a Sundre RCMP vehicle had its window smashed out by an unknown individual. Fish and Wildlife attended as well to investigate a deer that was found deceased near the location of the party.

Residents in the area expressed frustration to RCMP as they were kept awake by the noise of people partying and setting off fireworks all night long.  One resident reports that the following day there were still 40 vehicles in the area.

RCMP members returned to the scene the following day to survey the damages and found human feces, toilet paper, garbage, empty alcohol containers, stolen traffic signs, and covid social distancing signs littering the ground that had obviously been stolen from Innisfail.  RCMP approximated crowds in the area to be approx. 500 people.

There was a fair amount of enforcement primarily in the form of Provincial tickets and both detachments worked together and conducted numerous checkstops in an attempt to ensure there were no impaired drivers leaving the area.  Law enforcement efforts will be ongoing in an attempt to maintain safety in the area and hopefully provide some peace to the people who reside there.

“This is concerning behavior which has become very unfortunate for people who reside in this area, their ability to enjoy their homes and their property has obviously been impacted.  Further to this RCMP are concerned with the criminal behavior as well as the health concerns which are obvious” (Sgt Lori Eiler).

RCMP response will continue to be prevalent and resources will be dedicated to prevention and public education primarily, however we will not hesitate to lay charges if the situation warrants it.
