A Fort Saskatchewan man is one of three people facing charges after Bonnyville RCMP responded to a report of a suspicious vehicle on a rural property.

On Monday afternoon (Aug. 13) a citizen called police after finding an unfamiliar vehicle with flat tires parked on their property off Highway 28 and Range Road 482.
After locating the abandoned vehicle RCMP patrolled the area on foot and spotted two men trying to flee through a field. Officers arrested both men and also recovered the vehicle, which had been reported stolen.
RCMP used service dogs to track down and arrest a third suspect. The man was treated in hospital after receiving minor injuries.
