Lloydminster RCMP arrest quartet, seize gun

Four people are expected back in court to answer to weapons charges after they were arrested in Lloydminster.

On Jan. 19 at about 2:45 a.m. Lloydminster RCMP were patrolling along Highway 16 when they tried to stop a vehicle after they reported the driver had committed a traffic infraction.

The vehicle did not stop. Officers say it took off at high speed and they did not pursue. The vehicle was last seen heading northbound on 56 Avenue.

Shortly after, RCMP were called to a single-vehicle collision near 67 Street and 50 Avenue. They determined it was the same vehicle that had failed to stop earlier.
