The 27-year-old Albertan male is facing numerous driving and other criminal charges, including dangerous driving, driving while prohibited and breach of recognizing and resisting arrest. The suspect is also wanted in Alberta for several offences related to driving and violent behaviour.

The 100 Mile House RCMP detachment would like to thank the public for their support. Concerned civilians reporting tips could have limited the suspect’s dangerous driving and violent behaviour, allowing for the potential of innocent people being harmed.
