Overview of recent Red Deer RCMP arrests include stolen vehicles

Published

on

Red Deer, Alberta – Recent arrests by Red Deer RCMP include locating and arresting a number of suspects in stolen vehicles, many of whom attempted to flee police before being arrested. A number of those arrests occurred as RCMP monitored areas and prolific property offenders identified through the Red Deer RCMP’s Pinpoint policing strategies. Other arrests were thanks to citizens reporting suspicious activity.

October 11

Shortly before 5:30 am on October 11, RCMP located a suspect walking in the Johnstone neighbourhood who fled when he saw police. Police located him shortly afterward and confirmed that he was wanted on 10 outstanding warrants out of Red Deer and Edmonton. A new court date has not yet been set for 30 year old Jeremy Sanderson-Hayward regarding those outstanding warrants.

At 5:30 pm on October 10, RCMP worked with Lacombe Police Service in locating two men driving a stolen SUV in south Red Deer. When the vehicle refused to stop for RCMP, more police officers laid a tire deflation device, which punctured several tires. The SUV continued south onto Spruce Drive, where the occupants abandoned it and attempted to flee police on foot. Both suspects were arrested in the Mountview neighbourhood. One suspect assaulted a police officer in his attempt to escape custody, used stolen identification in an attempt to conceal his identity from police, and was found to be in possession of a small amount of what appeared to be crystal meth. The police officer was not injured during the arrest. The SUV had been reported stolen out of Red Deer on October 9.

 A 32 year old man and a 39 year old man face charges; their names cannot be released at this time as those charges have not yet been sworn before the courts.
