File # 2020-1074

On Thursday, December 24 2020, Alexis Creek RCMP received a report of a suspicious vehicle parked on highway 20 near Lee’s Corner. The pickup truck was stopped in the lane of travel creating a potential traffic hazard.

Police attended the area, located the pickup travelling west on Highway 20 and attempted to stop the vehicle. While the vehicle did slow down, it did not initially stop. Police boxed in the vehicle causing the truck to slow down, almost to a stop, then it accelerated striking the back of a police vehicle. No one was injured.

When police approached the truck, a handgun could be seen in the truck, and both occupants in the vehicle, a 48-year-old man, and a 20-year-old woman, were arrested without incident.

During the course of the investigation, police seized the handgun, a loaded magazine, an empty high power rifle magazine, suspected methamphetamine, drug paraphernalia, unknown powder and tablets as well as several duffel bags, plastic totes and boxes with suspected stolen merchandise.

The investigation is ongoing. If you have any information about this contact the Alexis Creek at (250) 394-4211 or Crime Stoppers at 1(800) 222-8477.
