Suspect in Wetaskiwin trunk kidnapping arrested

Ponoka RCMP seek arrest warrants for suspects of armed robbery as well

A suspect in a bizarre kidnapping attempt in Wetaskiwin has been arrested on arrest warrants for an unrelated matter.

Last summer, Wetaskiwin RCMP investigated an incident where a young woman escaped from a vehicle trunk in an apparent kidnapping attempt. Wetaskiwin RCMP made arrests in the incident, but were still looking for one suspect, Catlin Ermineskin, 27, of Maskwacis.

According to RCMP spokesperson Cst. Mike Hibbs, “Ponoka RCMP would like to advise that on Sept.19, 2018, Maskwacis RCMP arrested two males wanted on outstanding warrants.

“Catlin Ermineskin (27) is charged with one count of armed robbery. He has been remanded into custody and will be appearing in Ponoka Provincial Court Sept. 21.

“Kelly Ermineskin (30) is charged with one count of armed robbery. He was released after a judicial hearing and will be appearing in Ponoka Provincial Court on Oct. 5, 2018.

“Ponoka and Maskwacis RCMP would like to thank the general public for their assistance.”
