Fugitive arrested

A fugitive was arrested on 12 different outstanding warrants from three RCMP detachments in a Sylvan Lake motel just after noon Sunday, by a contingent of RCMP officers with guns drawn.

Cst. Landon Durston said charges against the man ranged from pointing a firearm and careless use of a firearm to break and enters and dangerous driving.

“Given the firearms offences, that’s why so many police were involved,” he said.

The man had been evading police for quite a while, some of the offences dating back to 2009. He’s been accused of evading police by taking off at a high rate of speed putting people at risk with his driving habits.
