FISHING LAKE - A coordinated effort between the Elk Point RCMP, Eastern Alberta District Rural Crime Reduction Unit (EADRCRU) and RCMP Police Dog Services (PDS) resulted in the arrest of a number of people wanted, in the Fishing Lake area.

On Dec. 2, police saw two men in a vehicle believed to have been used in other offences. Police tired to conduct a traffic stop by the vehicle fled a short distance before turning on a dead end road, according to RCMP.

The two men were arrested without incident.

Kevin Stahn, 31, of Fishing Lake was arrested on an outstanding warrant and charged with multiple additional offences, including: flight from police; possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose (x2); possession of methamphetamine for the purpose of trafficking; failing to comply with a recognizance; and four offences under the Traffic Safety Act.

Fergus Brosseau, 43, of Fishing Lake was arrested on an outstanding warrant and charged with multiple additional offences, including: flight from police; possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose (x2); possession of methamphetamine for the purpose of trafficking; and failing to comply with a recognizance.

He was also charged with theft of a truck stemming from a file in the Two Hills area in October.

"Both of the accused were released after a judicial hearing with conditions. They are set to appear next in St. Paul Provincial Court on Dec. 19, 2019," reads the RCMP media release.  

The next day, an Elk Point RCMP officer patrolling Fishing Lake received a tip from the public about a wanted offender in the area.

"Patrols conducted by both the Elk Point RCMP and EADRCRU located the wanted male and a traffic stop was conducted and both occupants were arrested without incident," reads the release.

RCMP say methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia were found after a search of the vehicle. Items were consistent with drug trafficking.

Kristen James Podolecki, 39, of Sputinow was arrested and charged with possession for the purpose of trafficking methamphetamine. He was also charged with break and enter stemming from a file in the Lloydminster area last month.

The passenger in the vehicle, Chelsea McAdam, 23, of Frog Lake was also arrested and charged multiple offences including: possession of methamphetamine for the purpose of trafficking; possession of methamphetamine; obstructing a peace officerl; and failing to comply with a probation order (x5).

Both of the accused are set to appear next in St. Paul Provincial Court on Dec. 19, 2019, according to RCMP.

“I’d like to thank the members of the public for their assistance,” says Sgt. Dave Henry, Elk Point Detachment Commander. “This was a great example of the community coming together to help locate offenders in the area.”
