A trio of suspected crooks were lucky they were only arrested—they could have frozen to death.
On Dec. 28, at approximately 11 p.m., the Lloydminster Crime Reduction Unit attempted to stop a stolen vehicle with a snow mobile in the back that was traveling southbound on 50 Ave., near 12 St. 
The vehicle fled from police and left the city. 
RCMP continued to follow the vehicle and located it stuck in a farmer’s field south west of the city.
The three suspects that were in the vehicle fled on foot and hid in the area. 
Police Dog Services, the RCMP helicopter, Lloyd Rescue, and WPD Ambulance all assisted in locating the suspects as there were extreme cold weather conditions in effect. 
The three were arrested without incident.
None of the suspects or police involved sustained any injuries as a result of this incident.
 Clayton Meronowich, 29, of Gunn, Alta., Karley Rylaarsdam, 28, from Edmonton, and Kayleigh Post, 25, of Strathmore, Alta., have all been charged with two counts of possession of stolen property.
Meronowich was also charged with flight from police, driving while disqualified, mischief, assault police officer, and several counts of breach of recognizance.
