A collaboration between Viking and Stony Plain RCMP has resulted in a pair of arrests ...
According to police, the arrests comes after a male and female were allegedly involved in a brazen residential break and enter.
Police say that on February 5th, Viking RCMP responded to a break and enter in progress on Rural Road 110 after the home owner found a male suspect breaking into his garage in attempts to steal his truck.
The victim attempted to intervene when he was threatened by the suspect before he fled the scene in the victim’s truck, picking up the female suspect while departing the residence.
The victim was not injured.
The suspects then abandoned that stolen vehicle in a ditch and got into a previously abandoned stolen truck, eventually being spotted by RCMP in the area but a pursuit was not initiated due to public safety concerns.
Later, at approximately 1:00pm, the suspects stole yet another truck – this time from a gas station in Viking and headed westbound on Highway 14.
RCMP say that eventually a collaborative investigation between the Stony Plain and Viking detachments would lead to the identification of both suspects and their arrests on February 7th.

Alicia Christine Silva, also of Spruce Grove, is also facing charges. She was released on bail and is due in Vegreville Provincial Court on February 26th.
