One of Lloydminster’s Most Wanted has been arrested.
According to the Lloydminster RCMP, police located a stolen vehicle in an alley near the 5200 block of 57 Street on Saturday evening. Two men were inside the stolen vehicle, and one was identified as Trent Angus, a 27 year old man from Lloydminster who was wanted on charges of possession of firearms, possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking, and failing to comply with conditions.
When police tried to stop the vehicle, which the report indicated Angus was driving, the police car was rammed. Angus then attempted to drive through a fence, and fled on foot to evade arrest, breaking into a nearby home. The report states that the RCMP used their police dog to track Angus, and he was located attempting to break in to another residence.
Despite trying to continue to escape from police, Angus was taken into custody. According to police, Angus sustained non-life threatening injuries while trying to evade arrest and was transported to hospital, and has since appeared in court for the charges related to his outstanding warrants.
The report states the investigation is ongoing, and further charges stemming from the incident will follow.
“It’s really important for us to be able to locate those individuals, arrest them, and make sure that they are brought before a judge and able to deal with the allegations facing them,” said Constable Grant Kirzinger, spokesperson for the Lloydminster RCMP.
“Trent Angus is an individual that we have been looking for, for quite a while. We’ve been receiving assistance in relation to our most wanted about locations and those things, so when we’re able to see him, we make sure that we’re always able to do everything that we can to locate and arrest people off the most wanted list.”
Kirzinger also spoke about how the arrest took place.
“When we located Mr.Angus, there was lots of RCMP in the area, in efforts trying to pinpoint his location as he was going through different yards and homes to evade arrest,” said Kirzinger.
“There were numerous police officers in the area to assist with that effort. When he was arrested and placed into custody, there were two police officers, as well as the police dog, when they affected that arrest.”
