COLD LAKE - A joint effort between the Cold Lake RCMP, Eastern Alberta District Crime Reduction Unit (EADCRU), and the newly-formed Lakeland Crime Reduction Unit lead to 10 individuals being arrested on outstanding warrants.

The RCMP were conducting a warrant apprehension operation on June 3 and 4 when they located the 10 individuals wanted for criminal coe offences.

Two of the 10, Desmond Spence and Jeffrey Saskatchewan, were remanded into custody after their judicial interim release hearings.

Desmond Levi Spence, 20 of no fixed address, is before the courts on charges stemming from his warrants, in addition to further charges added as a result of his actions at the time of his arrest. Spence is charged with dangerous operation of a motor vehicle, flight from peace officer, operation of motor vehicle while prohibited, five counts of failing to comply with a release order, and possession of property obtained by crime over $5,000.

Jeffrey Ronald Saskatchewan, 36 of no fixed address, was wanted on warrants of arrests for aggravated assault and other persons offences. Saskatchewan was arrested without incident in the M.D. of Bonnyville.

Cold Lake RCMP are still looking for information on the whereabouts of 32-year-old Jeremy Adelard Scanie, of Cold Lake, who is wanted for assault causing bodily harm and failing to comply with a release order. They're also looking for 25-year-old Cold Lake man Bryan Kalvin Collins for dangerous operation of a motor vehicle, two counts of failing to comply with a recognizance, and taking a motor vehicle without consent.

"Cooperation between the RCMP and the public is instrumental to the success of our crime reduction efforts. The simple act of reporting any suspicious activity and/or crime provides us with the necessary information by which we gather intelligence," Cold Lake RCMP said in a press release.

Anyone with information about a suspected criminal activity in their community can call the local police or anonymously at Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
