Maidstone RCMP have issued arrest warrants for Kenneth Wayne Curtis, 28, and Candice Melissa Harvey, 32, who are believed to have fled from Saskatchewan to Alberta in stolen vehicles.
On Friday, police went to an apartment complex on 51st Avenue in Lloydminster to arrest Curtis and Harvey. Shortly after officers arrived, they fled with their dog.
RCMP officials said Curtis and Harvey are facing multiple counts of possession of stolen property over $5,000 and theft of a motor vehicle. Several vehicles, mostly stolen from the Edmonton area, were recovered by RCMP on two properties east of Lloydminster. Police have also recovered a van that was stolen Thursday night in Lloydminster.
Earlier Friday morning, a business in Lashburn, Sask., was broken into and two trucks were stolen. These vehicles have oil field-related equipment on board and “Scorpion Oil Field Services” decals on the windows.
One is a white 2014 Dodge Ram 2500 with Saskatchewan licence plate 898 JHZ. The other is a grey 2007 Dodge Ram 3500 with Saskatchewan licence plate 454 FWM.
RCMP officials said they may be travelling in these vehicles. They are believed to be in the Fort Saskatchewan, Stony Plain, or Edmonton areas.
The dog is described as brown, mid-size and with somewhat of a black muzzle.
Police officials said there is no perceived risk to the public at this time.
