 Red Deer, Alberta – A Red Deer woman appears in court today after RCMP arrested her in a stolen truck on Orr Drive on February 16 and executed numerous outstanding warrants on her.

Shortly before 7 am on February 16, RCMP responded to a report of a suspicious truck parked on Orr Drive. As RCMP approached the truck it fled, narrowly missing colliding with the police cruiser and striking a vehicle in the intersection of Orr Drive and Oak Drive. The female driver then abandoned the truck and attempted to flee police on foot but was arrested after a brief foot chase. Several vehicles were damaged as a result of the collision, but, fortunately, no one was injured. The truck driven by the suspect had been reported stolen out of Edmonton.

At the time of her arrest, 27 year old Melissa Marie Bowie was wanted on warrants out of Edmonton for seven charges of possession of stolen property and two for failing to appear in court. She was further wanted on a warrant out of Leduc for failing to comply with court-imposed conditions.  

 Bowie now faces the following additional charges:

·         Criminal Code 355(a) – Possession of stolen property over $5,000

·         Criminal Code 129(a) – Resist/ obstruct peace officer

·         Criminal Code 249(1)(a) – Dangerous driving

·         Criminal Code 145(3) – Fail to comply with conditions

 Bowie was remanded to appear in court in Red Deer this morning, February 20.

 Red Deer RCMP thank the public for your continued engagement in Red Deer crime reduction efforts through reports of suspicious vehicles and suspicious activity.

Banff Detachment RCMP members suffer assaults while responding to disturbance

Banff, Alberta – On June 8, three RCMP officers suffered injuries while trying to effect the arrest of a 34-year-old Banff resident.  The officers are recovering and the male is facing charges.

At 5:38 p.m., the RCMP responded to a call for assistance at an apartment residence where a male was believed to be very intoxicated, combative and residents were requesting his removal.  While trying to effect the arrest of this male, he assaulted the three responding members.  The male jumped off a balcony, fled a short distance and was apprehended promptly after two more RCMP members arrived to assist. EMS provided assistance on scene as well.

The male was taken to a hospital where he was treated and released.  The initial responding RCMP members also went to the hospital where all have been released. One member remains off duty while the other two have returned to duty.

A judicial interim release hearing was held.  Robin Jeremy Tatham was released on a Recognizance and is scheduled to appear in court on June 20 in Canmore.  He is charged with six criminal code charges; disarming a police officer, assault police officer with a weapon (x2) and assault a police officer (x3).

“The efforts put forth by the attending officers to maintain control of this situation in the face of their injuries is to be commended” says Staff Sergeant Michael Buxton-Carr, Banff Detachment Commander.  “An incident like this demonstrates the risks we face and overcome on a daily basis.”
