Three people are facing charges after attempting to flee from Fort Macleod RCMP this week.
On Wednesday, members of the Fort Macleod RCMP attempted to initiate a traffic stop in the town, however, the vehicle continued at a high rate of speed and crashed through a fence of a business in the 400 block of 12 Street in Fort Macleod.
Further investigation by the Southern Alberta Crime Reduction Unit resulted in police locating the vehicle at approximately 3:11 p.m. on Range Road 262 near Township Road 64. RCMP said in a news release the vehicle was brought to a stop with the use of a tire deflation device and some help from a local resident who blocked a portion of the road with a large work truck.
Three occupants of the vehicle were taken into custody.
Kyle Dean Jordan, 27, of Lethbridge was arrested on several outstanding warrants and is facing additional charges of: dangerous driving; flight from police; driving while prohibited Canada wide; two counts of breach of conditions; and possession of fentanyl.
Following a judicial hearing Jordan did not speak to bail and is scheduled to appear in Lethbridge provincial court on Monday.
A 38-year-old male from Fort Macleod and a 32-year-old female from Pincher Creek are also facing charges for possession of a controlled substance and are scheduled to appear in Fort Macleod provincial court on Oct. 14.
