Wanted man captured after vehicle breaks down in front of police
EDMONTON – Talk about a case of bad timing. Having your car break down is never a fun experience, but having it happen in front of a group of police officers when you have warrants out for your arrest is one for the books.
As traffic was moving at a snail’s pace Tuesday afternoon on the QE II in Nisku due to a crash, one vehicle suddenly sputtered to a stop, stalling right in front of police.
The officers quickly noticed the man behind the wheel appeared anxious, and saw him desperately trying to re-start his vehicle.
“Our first thought was to help him, but it turned out he and the passenger helped us clear up some outstanding warrants,” said Cst. Julian Celms of the Leduc RCMP.
The driver, Madison Dale Soosay, was wanted in connection with a recent assault in Maskwacis.
“This vehicle the individual was driving broke down at the wrong place, at the wrong time.”
Soosay was also charged for driving with a suspended licence. His passenger had an outstanding warrant out for her arrest as well, relating to an alleged impaired driving charge.
