Cops nab Alberta bad guys

A sharp-eyed member of the Salmon Arm RCMP resulted in two people landing behind bars.

Staff Sgt. Scott West said a patrolling officer noticed a male walking through rows of vehicles in a mall parking lot at 10th Street and 10th Avenue.

“Other officers then patrolled the mall parking lot and noticed a vehicle with no front plates and a driver behind the wheel that appeared uncharacteristically surprised when the police vehicle was seen,” said West.

“The vehicle made a hasty exit of the area at high speed and was located by another officer as two people exited the car in another parking lot which was out of view of the first police car.”

The two were arrested as they walked away from the car.

“A check of the vehicle revealed that it was stolen from Calgary and the driver, a 49-year-old female, was prohibited from driving and under conditions not to be in a motor vehicle. The female also has a number of charges before the courts. She was held in custody for a bail hearing before a justice of the peace.”

The 33-year-old male was released for a court appearance later this year.
