  • Sylvan RCMP arrest male for break and enter and pursuit

    Sylvan Lake, Alta. – On Feb. 26, 2019 at approximately 12:00 a.m., Sylvan Lake RCMP were called to assist Rocky Mountain House RCMP with a report of two stolen vehicles involved in a break and enter to a local business in Rocky Mountain House.

    Sylvan Lake RCMP were then advised of a break and enter a short time later to a gas station in Bentley. During this investigation, it was determined that one of the stolen vehicles from Rocky Mountain House was used to commit this offence. A second call for service was received from a Bentley resident advising that someone had just tried to steal his vehicle, but was unsuccessful.

    The suspect(s) then travelled in the stolen vehicle from Rocky Mountain House from Bentley to the Kuusamo Industrial Park area. Police were able to locate the suspect inside an industrial shop, where the suspect then opened the overhead door and drove a semi truck and trailer towards officers in an attempt to escape. No one was injured.

    A short pursuit ensued as the semi tractor continued towards Red Deer travelling in the westbound lane towards oncoming traffic. Police were able to stop the semi, after a tire deflation device was successfully deployed. An adult male was taken into custody with the assistance of Red Deer RCMP and RCMP Police Dog Services.

    Further investigation revealed that a second semi unit was stolen from Kuusamo Industrial Park area, and the semi was later located in Gasoline Alley in Red Deer.

    Jason William Ionson (38) of Red Deer, Alta. has been charged with:

    • Possession of stolen under $5,000
    • Mischief over $5,000
    • Mischief under $5,000
    • Dangerous operation of a motor vehicle
    • Flight from police
    • Resist arrest
    • Operate motor vehicle while disqualified
    • Fail to comply with recognizance

    At the time of his arrest, Ionson was at large on numerous outstanding warrants from RCMP detachments throughout the Central Alberta area.

    He was remanded into custody after a judicial hearing, and will be appearing in Red Deer Provincial Court on March 5, 2019.

    The investigation continues in connection with the other stolen vehicle out of Rocky Mountain House and the other stolen semi from the Kuusamo Industrial Park area.

    If anyone has information regarding this incident, they are asked to contact the Sylvan Lake RCMP at 403-858-7200 or their local police.

  • From Drumheller RCMP

    Drumheller man charged following search warrant and hoax bomb

    A Drumheller man is facing charges following the execution of a search warrant on an apartment in the 400 block of 11 Ave Sein Drumheller.

    The search warrant was executed by Drumheller RCMP with assistance from the Emergency Response Team.  Some suspicious items in the apartment resulted in the evacuation of the building and the deployment of the Explosive Disposal Unit.  Upon closer inspection, the suspicious items, packaged to look like homemade explosive devices, did not contain the required elements to be a danger to the public.

    A firearm seized from the apartment was consistent in appearance to a police carbine, but upon closer inspection and disassembly was deemed to be an airsoft with primarily metal components.

    Police would like to remind the public that replica or inert firearms used in the commission of an offense can bear the same penalties as if the item were a true firearm.

    Terry Heptonstall (39) of Drumheller is charged with:

    • Pointing a firearm
    • Possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose x 2
    • Mischief

    If anyone has any information on this or other offenses in the community please report to the Drumheller RCMP at 403-823-2630. If you wish to remain anonymous, you can contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS), online at www.P3Tips.com or by using the “P3 Tips” app available through the Apple App or Google Play Store.
