At 1:40 am on June 15, Beiseker RCMP re­sponded to a com­plaint from a ru­ral res­i­dent re­port­ing a sus­pi­cious ve­hi­cle near High­way 566. When of­fi­cers lo­cated the white Ford truck, it fled into a field where the oc­cu­pants aban­doned it and ran away on foot. The Ford was found to have been re­ported stolen out of Cal­gary a few days ear­lier.

RCMP po­lice dog ser­vices from Air­drie as well as Air­drie Ru­ral mem­bers at­tended to as­sist. The po­lice dog tracked the sus­pects for two hours be­fore lo­cat­ing them hid­ing in a wooded area.

Joshua METHOT, (28) from White­court, AB, has been charged with as­sault­ing a peace of­fi­cer, re­sist­ing ar­rest and pos­ses­sion of stolen prop­erty. He has been re­manded into cus­tody and is sched­uled to appear on June 22 in Air­drie pro­vin­cial court by CCTV.

A 16-year-old fe­male who can­not be named has also been charged with as­sault­ing a peace of­fi­cer, pos­ses­sion of metham­phetamine and pos­ses­sion of stolen prop­erty. She was re­leased to the cus­tody of her par­ents and is sched­uled to appear on July 20 in Air­drie Youth Court.

The Beiseker RCMP con­tinue to re­quest that any sus­pi­cious ve­hi­cles or ac­tiv­ity be re­ported and wishes to ex­tend a thank you for the tips al­ready re­ceived.
