Drayton Valley RCMP on scene at firearms incident – charges laid

Moon Lake, Alta – Following an incident on July 28 that saw a pursuit, a vehicle fire, and the deployment of the RCMP Emergency Response Team, charges have been laid against four accused subjects.

At 8:32 a.m., Drayton Valley RCMP were dispatched to a home invasion which had just occurred.  The suspects fled the house prior to police arrival.

The suspect vehicle was initially spotted on Highway 759 by an Alberta Sheriff, but an attempt to stop it was not successful. The vehicle continued to flee. The vehicle was spotted by a homeowner on Range Road 72 near Highway 624. The vehicle fled that property and was located by members in a field off of Range Road 73 near Moon Lake Hall. The RCMP set up containment when the vehicle was spotted on a field. The vehicle caught fire in the field, and the attending RCMP members contained the area.

Neighbouring detachments of Evansburg, Mayerthorpe and Parkland all provided assistance with the containment.  Supporting units, including Police Dog Services, Emergency Response Team and Air Services were all engaged.

Two males were located initially at a residence near Highway 22.  The other two subjects were located as a result of a tip from the member of the public.

Three of the accused were treated and released at a local hospital as a result of injuries believed to have been sustained by jumping from the moving vehicle. No one else was injured during these incidents.

Shawn Victor Fleming (30), Stuart Kevin McMillan (19) and Dylan Alexander Andres (21) all of Edmonton are jointly facing numerous criminal code charges including; break and enter to a dwelling house, using a firearm while committing an indictable offence, possession of a prohibited weapon, et al.

Judicial Interim Hearings were held and all three accused remain in custody to attend court on August 4 in Drayton Valley.

A 38-year-old female from Edmonton is also facing charges which have not been sworn in court yet.

Information received led investigators to a location where two firearms were recovered.

The public assistance received by the RCMP was very appreciated throughout this incident.

Blue Bombers become first CFL team to earn playoff spot with 26-16 victory over Elks

Published on

EDMONTON — Zach Collaros threw two touchdown passes as the Winnipeg Blue Bombers defeated the Edmonton Elks 26-16 on Friday night to become the first CFL team to clinch a playoff berth.

Winnipeg (9-1) captured its seventh straight victory and improved to 7-0 within the West Division. Collaros finished 15-of-24 passing for 210 yards with an interception to remain the CFL’s passing leader (2,565 yards) but is also tops in TD passes with 15.

This marks the fifth straight season that Winnipeg, the defending Grey Cup champion, has made the playoffs.

Edmonton (2-7) suffered its fifth straight loss and dropped to 0-5 at home this season.

Edmonton’s defence forced a safety at 9:31 of the first quarter, then came up big five minutes later as Trumaine Washington intercepted Collaros in the end zone. The Bombers closed out the opening quarter with a 37-yard Ali Mourtada field goal.

The Elks responded with Sean Whyte’s 34-yard field goal at 11:22 of the second.

Winnipeg took the lead with three minutes left in the first half as a 47-yard completion to Kenny Lawler set up Collaros’s five-yard TD strike to Andrew Harris. But Harris appeared to suffer an injury to his right knee and did not return as Brady Oliveira finished up with 105 yards rushing on 16 carries.

Whyte kicked a 25-yard field cut Winnipeg’s half-time lead to 10-8.

Mourtada converted from 27 and a career-high 43 yards to start the third. Edmonton tied it 16-16 on Taylor Cornelius’s 11-yard TD toss to Shai Ross. Backup quarterback Dakota Prukop added the two-point convert.

Rookie Cornelius got the start as incumbent Trevor Harris was a healthy scratch.

Moments after Elks defender Aaron Grymes couldn’t hang on to an easy interception opportunity, Collaros hit Rasheed Bailey on a 48-yard completion before finding him on a five-yard scoring strike six minutes into the fourth.

Mourtada cemented the win with a 23-yard field goal with 50 seconds remaining.

Winnipeg hosts the B.C. Lions next Saturday while Edmonton has a bye week before returning home against the Hamilton Tiger-Cats on Oct. 29.

NOTES: Harris being sidelined while healthy has led to speculation the Elks are actively shopping their veteran quarterback on the trade front… Lawler returned to the lineup after being suspended by Winnipeg for its last game for an impaired driving arrest… The actual attendance appeared to be far beneath the announced 24,276 fans.

Medical examiner describes deaths of mother, toddler at Calgary murder trial

Published on

CALGARY — A forensic pathologist has told a murder trial that a Calgary woman and her young daughter suffered blunt force trauma to their heads.

Jasmine Lovett and 22-month-old Aliyah Sanderson were reported missing in April 2019.

The next month, their bodies were found buried in a day use area in Kananaskis Country, west of Calgary.

Robert Leeming has pleaded guilty to second-degree murder in the death of Lovett but not guilty to second-degree murder in the child’s death.

Deputy medical examiner Dr. Akmal Coetzee-Khan described his findings through a series of autopsy photos.

He says Lovett appeared to have been moved after her death, judging from pooling of blood in her body.

She also had a black eye and bruising on her face.
