Four people from Red Deer face charges in connection with an alleged break and enter in Innisfail which led to a police vehicle being rammed during an arrest.
Innisfail RCMP were called to a break and enter at a local business early Sunday morning. Police witnessed one of the suspects fleeing the business and getting into a waiting pickup truck.
One RCMP officer activated their emergency lights and the suspect truck rammed the police vehicle, causing front-end damage, according to Mounties.
Police were able to immobilize the suspect vehicle and took four suspects into custody. Nobody was injured during the incident.
Matthew Verhoek, 37, Billy Condon, 34, Angela Hasnip, 29, and Jordan Ross-Achtemichuk, 26 were each charged with breaking and entering, theft under $5,000, wearing a disguise during the commission of an offence and possession of property obtained by crime under $5,000.
Verhoek was also charged with assaulting a police officer, flight while pursued by a peace officer, numerous breaches of prior release conditions and driving while unauthorized.
Condon was wanted on numerous arrest warrants from Jasper, Red Deer and Wetaskiwin, police said.
All four suspects were held for judicial interim release hearings. Verhoek and Condon were remanded into custody while Hasnip and Ross-Achtemichuk were released.
They are due to appear in court later this month.
