Ponoka RCMP lay charges after social media meeting results in kidnapping – Female Wanted
The Ponoka RCMP have laid charges and made arrests against two males and a female following a 911 complaint of a kidnapping, beating and robbery which occurred on Sept. 7.
At 4:23 a.m. on Sept. 7, Ponoka RCMP were alerted to the above incident which was reported to have occurred, hours earlier, in Ponoka. Investigation reveals that a 22-year-old male victim from Slave Lake met a female online, and after almost a year of online communication, agreed to meet her. The male got into a vehicle, determined to be previously stolen, with the female in Ponoka.
Allegations are that the while in the vehicle, the male was assaulted by two unknown males, one of whom had a gun. Over a lengthy period, the male was driven to several banks where he was forced to provide his banking information in order for withdrawals to be made from his accounts. The victim’s truck and cell phone was stolen, and he was eventually dropped off in Blackfalds.
Ponoka RCMP General Investigation Section members collaborated with Red Deer and Blackfalds RCMP to coordinate intelligence on this incident. The suspects were identified as Amber Loretta Knickle (21), Jared Michael Mcleod (26) and Chasetin Jon Arthur Morin (25). Charges were sworn against all three subjects. An arrest warrant was issued for Knickle on Sept. 9 and for Mcleod and Morin on Sept. 15.
Knickle is charged with robbery, while Mcleod and Morin are charged with robbery with a firearm (x2), kidnapping and assault.
On Sept. 16 at 11:58 a.m., the Central Alberta District Crime Reduction Unit located a stolen vehicle in Gasoline Alley, and with assistance from Blackfalds RCMP, arrested Jared Mcleod and Chasetin Morin, who were both in the vehicle. A search of the vehicle incidental to arrest led the RCMP to recover an imitation firearm, a loaded shotgun, ammunition, methamphetamine, and at least 61 pieces of miscellaneous stolen identity documents. Charges are pending.
At the time of his arrest, Morin was wanted on an arrest warrant out of Red Deer for an earlier incident where he fled from police while driving the victim’s stolen truck.
The RCMP have been unable to locate Amber Loretta Knickle and are seeking public assistance. Amber is described as:
– Caucasian female
– 5’3” tall / 119 lbs.
– Blonde / brown hair and green eyes
– Unknown tattoo on one of her fingers
If you have information about the whereabouts of Amber Knickle, please contact the Ponoka RCMP at 403-783-4472 or call your local police.
