RCMP lay charges against naked sus­pects

Metro Canada (Edmonton) - - Edmonton -

Derek Scott was driv­ing to a job site south of Ed­mon­ton when he got a call about an ac­ci­dent in­volv­ing one of his work trucks, a stolen baby and some naked peo­ple.

It was some­thing he had to see to be­lieve.

The man­ag­ing part­ner at LPH In­dus­trial ar­rived min­utes later in Nisku, Alta., to find his com­pany truck had been rammed by what looked like a brand new BMW.

Inside the truck, Scott said, was a man, his daugh­ter and her six-week old baby who had been al­legedly kid­napped.

And from the car he saw po­lice and fire­fight­ers pull out five peo­ple in the buff.

Moun­ties have charged three peo­ple in the bizarre case but have not re­leased many de­tails, in­clud­ing why the peo­ple in the car were not wear­ing any clothes.

A 27-year-old man and two women, 35 and 30, are to ap­pear Thurs­day in Le­duc court on charges of kid­nap­ping and re­sist­ing ar­rest.

Two teenage girls were re­leased with­out charges. RCMP say they are not nam­ing the ac­cused be­cause do­ing so may iden­tify the youths.

Four of the five were taken to hos­pi­tal for “var­i­ous rea­sons,’’ said po­lice, adding drugs and/ or al­co­hol are con­sid­ered fac­tors in the case and that the sus­pects and vic­tims all know each other.

They said the man, woman and baby were forced against their will from a home in Le­duc County into the BMW.

RCMP said the vic­tims were not in­jured.
