As a result of a theft of gas complaint two residents of Alberta were arrested and charged for multiple offences on March 29th. Kindersley RCMP members were provided details of the vehicle that was involved in the gas theft and spotted it a short time later. Upon approaching the vehicle, and attempting to arrest the driver, a struggle ensued whereby the suspect began driving off creating a dangerous situation for the police and the public at which time police disengaged. The licence plate was obtained prior to attempting to arrest the suspects and the truck was found to be stolen. The truck and its occupants had also been involved in two recent break and enters at two separate rural locations. The two occupants were arrested later that evening after trying again to flee from police and getting stuck in a field. The following charges were laid:
- Carrington Hager and Spencer Black were charged with Break and Enter under section 348(1)(C) of the Criminal Code, Possession of an Instrument Suitable for the Purpose of Breaking into a Place under section 351(1) of the Criminal Code and Mischief under section 430(3) of the Criminal Code, Possession of Stolen Property over $5000 under section 355(A) of the Criminal Code and Possession of Stolen Property under $5000 under section 355(B) of the Criminal Code
