Police searching for fleeing suspects

Ponoka RCMP looking into incidents involving two stolen pickup trucks

Ponoka RCMP are still on the hunt for three suspects that fled from a stolen vehicle.

On June 4, a unit with the Ponoka Integrated Traffic section was conducting speed enforcement on Hwy 2 near Morningside when a vehicle was spotted northbound going an excessive speed.

The white Super-Duty Ford pickup was clocked going 145 km/hour, prompting the cruiser to activate its emergency lights and give chase.

The truck failed to slow, but a few moments later did slow and come to a stop, only to have three suspects bail out and run off. It was later found the truck stopped due to a mechanical problem and that it had been stolen out of Red Deer.

Police were also called on June 5 to a report of a red Ford F250 pickup having been stolen from a residence on 46 St. in Ponoka.

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of the three suspects or further information regarding these two crimes are asked to contact the Ponoka RCMP detachment at (403) 783-4472.
