    Original story

    January 10, 2018

    Sunchild First Nation, Alberta – on January 3, 2018 the Rocky Mountain House RCMP responded to a complaint of an armed robbery at the Sunchild Store.  Investigation led to the identification of a suspect and an arrest warrant has been issued for 28-year-old Evan Ernest Foureyes.

    Just prior to 8:00 p.m., three males arrived at the store on two quads, one of the males wearing a balaclava.  The male removed his balaclava, and following a conversation with the store clerk, he made an attempt to deploy what appears to be bear spray.  The canister malfunctioned and consequently no spray was deployed. 

    The male grabbed some product off the counter and fled the store without paying.  He departed on one quad, while the other two males who had no involvement in the incident, departed on a second quad.

    RCMP responded and located the quad which the suspect had fled on.  It was abandoned, running, and stuck in a ditch.  The RCMP determined that the quad had been reported stolen.  It was recovered by the RCMP, but the males, including Foureyes, were not located.

    As a result of this incident, Evan Foureyes is facing five criminal code charges: Robbery with a weapon, assault with a weapon, disguised with intent to commit an offence, possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose and drive while disqualified.  A warrant has been issued for his arrest.

    Foureyes is described as:

              First Nations

              Brown hair / brown eyes

              Approximately 5’10” tall / 170 lbs.

              Several tattoos on his arms, including sleeves on both arms that extend to his chest and neck

     The Rocky Mountain House RCMP is seeking public assistance in locating Evan Foureyes.  If his whereabouts is known, or you have seen him recently, please contact the Rocky Mountain House RCMP at 403-845-2882, or call your local police detachment.  If you want to remain anonymous, you can contact Crime Stoppers by phone at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS), by internet at www.tipsubmit.com, or by SMS.

  • Strathcona County Enforcement Services nab speeders on Highway 216

     Strathcona County, Alberta – During the past few weeks Strathcona County RCMP and Enforcement Services have received several complaints regarding speeding on Highway 216. As a result, officers dedicated six hours of enforcement to this location amongst other locations in the County over the past weekend.

    During this period of time, our officers detected over 70 vehicles exceeding the posted speed limits with some startling speeds;

    -Two vehicles were exceeding 190km/h

    -Two vehicles traveling at speeds of 170km/h to 175km/h

    -One vehicle traveling at a speed of 152km/h

    -Three vehicles traveling at speeds of 140km/h to 150km/h. 

    The speed limit on Highway 216 is 100km/h.

    Additionally, on the afternoon of Saturday April 14, 2018, a Jeep Wrangler was caught on 17 Street, south of Baseline Road traveling at a speed of 117km/h.  The speed limit on 17 Street is 60km/h.

    A collision at any of these speeds would spell instant death as vehicles and human bodies are not built for this kind of velocity.  At those speeds, a driver is not only risking his or her life, they are also placing everyone around them in jeopardy.  If convicted, a driver exceeding the speed limit by 50km/h or more may face a fine of $2,300.00 and could have their licence suspended for a period of up to 6 months.  Police urge motorist to drive responsibly and make the personal decision to follow the rules of the road.  Don’t wait on a collision or a ticket to change your driving behavior, make the commitment now.

    “Unsafe speed is a long-standing issue and continues to be a leading cause in car collisions,” says Cpl. Shayne Gudmundson of the Strathcona County RCMP. “Speed limits exist for public safety reasons, and we are committed to targeting those who place the public in danger.”

  • Lock Down at St. Matthew Catholic School

    Rocky Mountain House, Alberta – On 2018-04-18 at 14:08 pm, Rocky Mountain House RCMP were dispatched to a call of an unknown teenaged male carrying a long barrel firearm near St. Matthew Catholic School who then appeared to have entered the school. The school was contacted by police and were placed on lock down. RCMP members attended immediately and cleared the school, determining the school and occupants were safe and unharmed.
