On February 13, 2019, at approximately 430 pm Innisfail RCMP responded to a report of a robbery at the ATB bank in Innisfail.  During this investigation, a member on patrol observed a stolen tow truck and felt the driver matched the description of the suspect from the bank robbery. 

Innisfail RCMP engaged in a coordinated pursuit with the vehicle, utilizing resources from, Blackfalds RCMP, Red Deer RCMP, Innisfail ITU, and Red Deer police dog services. A tire deflation device was deployed and ultimately disabled the vehicle in Red Deer City.  The occupants of the vehicle fled on foot attempting to take another vehicle with force, however, they were unsuccessful and continued to flee police on foot.  Red Deer police dog services were successful in apprehending both individuals.  The ongoing investigation into the bank robbery indicates at this point that neither of these two individuals appear to be involved in the initial bank robbery however both are facing numerous unrelated charges.
