Police have arrested three people after an incident on Anthony Henday Drive.
On Saturday (June 26), at around 7:12 p.m., Strathcona County RCMP was called to assist Edmonton Police Services with a road rage incident that involved a possible gun being pointed at another vehicle.
The suspect vehicle, a 2016 grey Honda HR-V, was reportedly travelling north on the Anthony Henday when RCMP found it. They attempted to stop the vehicle, but the driver refused, weaving between traffic and driving into a ditch, then into a nearby field before coming to rest.
All occupants got out and ran but later gave up and came walking back to police, where they were arrested without further incident.
Police soon learned the vehicle was stolen from the Edmonton area and found the gun in a nearby ditch.
Several charges have been laid against 22-year-old Jayden Houle from Edmonton, 19-year-old Cheyanne Larocque from Edmonton and 18-year-old Isaiah Cote-Stoffels from Calgary. All three are charged with:
- Possession of a firearm in a motor vehicle
- Unauthorized possession of a firearm
- Possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose
- Possession of stolen property over $5,000
Houle is facing additional charges for pointing a firearm, weapons possession contrary to order, flight from a peace officer and failing to comply with conditions. Cote-Stoffels was also charged with weapons possession contrary to order and two counts of failing to comply with conditions.
All three have court dates scheduled for Thursday (June 30).
