RCMP in northeast Alberta have concluded an alleged crime spree with a total of 89 charges jointly laid against six people, majority of which were teenagers, after a four-hour rampage. The lengthy episode began when Vermilion RCMP was first called on Tuesday morning to a home invasion at a rural home near Dewberry, Alta.
Police explained that two males entered the home, where after confronting the homeowner all three entered into a fight. Fortunately the homeowner was able to hold on to one of the suspects until the police arrived. Thereafter the second suspect, i.e. an adult male, was found at a short distance with help of a police dog. Later, Kitscoty and Elk Point RCMP found four more suspects in a stolen car parked at a short distance too. Conclusively, police say the six individuals taken into custody were accountable for a series of criminal attacks across the region, starting from a liquor theft to failed carjacking in the Cold Lake area on late Monday night.
