Police are applauding the efforts of a couple of civic-mided citizens who helped cops arrest a fleeing suspect.
“The police never expect the public to put themselves at risk,
however we are very thankful for the quick thinking and actions of these Good Samaritans,” said Lloydminster RCMP Cpl. Tammy Hollingsworth.
Police were making pro-active patrols about 8:30 p.m. July 6 and were
checking license plates in the LloydMall when they noted two men and a woman walk from the mall and get into an SUV.
Police attempted to conduct a traffic stop when the SUV started backing up toward the police car.
The SUV fled at a high rate of speed out of the parking lot, almost striking two pedestrians.
A spike belt soon ended the SUV’s flight.
However, two men fled from the vehicle while the woman was arrested immediately by police.
Two good Samaritans, who were out for an evening walk with their dogs, saw the males running from the police, took chase and apprehended one of the suspects.
Police later apprehended the second male.
Cops learned the SUV was stolen and all three suspects were on multiple warrants out of various surrounding areas.
Police found two firearms and a quantity of drugs in the vehicle and on the suspects.
“We are also thankful that no one was injured and are grateful to all of the public who assisted with this successful outcome,” said Hollingsworth.
Julian Ben Cory Littlewolfe, 28, of Onion Lake, Sask., was charged with: possession of cocaine for the purpose of trafficking; possession of crystal methamphetamine for the purpose of trafficking; possession of property over $5,000 obtained by crime; unauthorized possession of a firearm/prohibited weapon or restricted weapon; possession of a firearm in motor vehicle; unsafe storage of firearms; resisting/obstructing a peace officer; failing to comply with probation order and two other charges.
Tiakohl Amber Ryane, 21, of Onion Lake, was charged with the same offences, as was Branden Frederick Lee Dillon, 22 of Onion Lake, as well as one more for dangerous operation of a motor vehicle.
All three accused were remanded in custody and are expected to be in court in the coming days.
