Police chase

On Nov. 23, 2019, at 4:45 p.m., RCMP responded to a report of a suspicious male near the Corner Gas in Lac La Biche, Alta.

Herman fled on foot, once police located him sitting inside a truck.

A short foot chase ensued with Herman returning to the location and jumping into a police vehicle.

A Lac La Biche RCMP officer removed him from the vehicle after the vehicle reversed into a truck parked near the scene, which resulted in the officer sustaining minor injuries.

There were no other injuries.

Upon further investigation, RCMP revealed the truck, which Herman previously occupied, was a stolen vehicle from Fort McMurray.

Police arrested Guynavin Grant Herman and charged him with two counts of possession of property obtained by crime.

He also faces counts of theft over $5000, resisting arrest, and failure to comply with an undertaking.

There is a warrant from Fort McMurray on the accused, who remains in custody.
