From Cold Lake RCMP

Cold Lake RCMP officer recovering after aggravated assault

A 44-year-old male is in custody in Cold Lake following yesterday’s violent attack on the RCMP officer trying to effect his arrest.

At 5:30 p.m., Cold Lake RCMP located a stolen vehicle in the Walmart parking lot and the responding officer made an effort to deal with the vehicle and arrest the male who was believed to be responsible.  The male allegedly assaulted the RCMP member by punching the member in the head.  The RCMP member’s baton was taken by the male and the member was struck in the head numerous times with the baton.

The male fled on foot with the RCMP baton. The male smashed the window of a different, occupied vehicle in an unsuccessful attempt to steal it.  He then threatened another driver with a knife and the baton and fled southbound on Highway 28 in the newly stolen Trailblazer.

Cold Lake RCMP initiated a pursuit and managed to cause the stolen Trailblazer to become disabled.  The male was arrested on scene without further incident.  The RCMP baton was recovered in the vehicle.

The RCMP member has been treated at the hospital for non life-threatening, but serious injuries and is recovering at home.

The male remains in police custody and will be facing charges as this investigation continues. An update will be provided when available.

“I want to thank the community members who came forward to assist our RCMP member and to provide valuable witness evidence in relation to this terrible incident” says Sergeant Ryan Howrish of the Cold Lake RCMP.  “An incident like this highlights the unpredictable and dangerous situations we face on a daily basis.”

Drugs, Guns Seized in Innisfail

A short-term investigation by ALERT’s Red Deer organized crime team has resulted in the seizure of a wide variety of drugs from a home in Innisfail. Two women were arrested.

The two-week investigation wrapped up on June 25, 2020, as ALERT investigators executed a search warrant at a house in the 4000 block of 48 Avenue in Innisfail. Assistance was provided by Innisfail RCMP.

Once inside, investigators seized more than $23,000 worth of drugs and cash, including:

  • 47 grams of fentanyl powder;
  • 146 grams of methamphetamine;
  • 18 grams of cocaine;
  • 445 millilitres of gamma-hydroxybutyrate (GHB);
  • 8 blotters of LSD;
  • 198 illicit prescription pills;
  • 13.9 grams of cannabis resin; and
  • $1,750 cash proceeds of crime.

Two .22-calibre rifles — one of which had the barrel sawed off — and hundreds of rounds of ammunition were also seized.

“The wide variety of drugs seized during this investigation is remarkable, especially for a town such as Innisfail,” said Insp. Sean Boser, ALERT Regional Teams. “Being able to act quickly to get drugs and firearms out of these suspects’ hands is a big win for community safety.”

“Having a partner like ALERT, who we can collaborate with on investigations like this one, is invaluable,” said Staff Sgt. Chris Matechuk, Innisfail RCMP detachment commander. “The drug trade and associated violence are problems that are not confined to urban centres. We will use every resource at our disposal to keep our community safe.”

Pamela Jacobson, 43, and Keanna Chuhaniuk, 24, are each charged with:

  • possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking (x5);
  • possession of proceeds of crime;
  • careless use of a firearm (x2);
  • unauthorized possession of a firearm;
  • possession of a prohibited firearm; and
  • possession of a weapon obtained by crime.

Members of the public who suspect drug or gang activity in their community can call local police, or contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477). Crime Stoppers is always anonymous.

ALERT was established and is funded by the Alberta Government and is a compilation of the province’s most sophisticated law enforcement resources committed to tackling serious and organized crime.
