Agencies work together to catch and arrest prolific offender in Drayton Valley

RCMP Alberta - On July 23, 2018 at approximately 9:30 pm, Drayton Valley RCMP were on patrol when they received a tip of a wanted male on a stolen side by side. The tipster provided information on the direction of travel and approximate speed. The side by side entered a bush area where it became stuck, the male fled on foot through the bush. Members contacted the RCMP Police Dog Service and devised a plan to contain the area.

Oilfield agency security also assisted with the containment. Upon arrival of the Police Dog Service they began tracking the suspect through deep brush crossing over an area of the North Saskatchewan River through thigh high water, up steep inclines and then back through the water again for a distance of approximately 3 and a half kilometres. The suspect, 27 year old James Roblin was subsequently arrested for outstanding warrants from Banff and Drayton Valley. Additional Charges include Possession of Stolen Property over $5000, Break and Enter, Hit and Run to escape, Breach of Recognizance x 3, Possession of a weapon for dangerous purpose.

The cooperation of all parties involved was instrumental in bringing this event to a safe and successful conclusion.
