A strange incident earlier this week led to some trouble for two people.
 
At around 7:40 p.m. on Monday (October 9), the Fort Saskatchewan RCMP received a report of a vehicle engulfed in flames, being towed next to the Walmart parking lot.
 
A responding officer recognized the owner of the tow truck, then saw him and another suspect in a separate truck, a black Ford F350. 
 
After being stopped, the officer questioned the driver (from Bruderheim). The driver didn't have insurance, or license plates for either of the two trucks. As a result, he now has a court date on the matter.
 
The passenger in the F350 had five outstanding warrants from the Edmonton area and was arrested.
 
Police are still investigating the incident.
