It was the snow bank that got 'em

Note to crooks: when you want to run from police, stay away from those pesky snowbanks.
That’s how police nabbed a suspected B&E artist they were chasing Jan. 21.
About 11:30, Lloydminster RCMP received a complaint of a man trying to break into a residence in the 4700 block of 54 Street.
The crook wasn’t too good at it and failed to gain entry to the home, so he fled.
The suspect then went on to break in to vehicles in the same area and near the 1800 block of 47 Avenue.
Police dog services were contacted and tracked the fleeing suspect to a stolen vehicle in the 6800 block of 42 Street with two people inside.
The vehicle fled the area, but quickly crashed into a snow bank and one suspect was arrested at the scene.
The other fled, but was later found by a police dog hiding in an unlocked vehicle.
Evan O’Hagan, 24, of Lloydminster, is facing a dozen charges, including charges of break and enter, two counts of possession of stolen property, two counts of failing to stop for police, resist arrest, two counts of trespassing at night, mischief, possession of a weapon, possession of a controlled substance and possession of break in instruments.
Gina Rindero, 31, of Lloydminster, is facing two charges of possession of property obtained by crime, two counts of failing to stop for police, possession of break in instruments, and possession of a weapon.
“These charges are a direct result of relentless police work by the officers working last night,” said RCMP Const. Grant Kirzinger. 
“In the past two weeks we have been able to lay charges on all major property crime files we’ve received.”
