3:30 a.m.  – An attempted vehicle stop by RCMP resulted in several charges being laid against an 18-year-old Red Deer male. A police officer on patrol along Lakeshore Drive at 50th Street in Sylvan Lake noticed a truck proceeding eastbound with no headlights.

The male then exited the vehicle on foot and was later tracked by the Police Dog Service unit.
