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.
Demien Lee Rosenkranz, 25, of Fort Saskatchewan is facing several charges including possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose, driving while disqualified, failure to comply with probation order (x3), possession of break-in instruments, break and enter, resisting a peace office, and possession of property obtained by crime over $5000.
Rosenkranz will appear in St. Paul Provincial Court on Thursday (Aug. 16).
Dustin Davidson Hardy, 24, of Kikino, Alberta, and 32-year-old Christopher James Erasmus of Lac La Biche are also facing a number of charges.
