At 00:05 AM Sep 26 a K9 handler observed a black F350 truck speeding the wrong way on a one way section of Ave C north. The officer reported what he saw but lost sight of the truck as it was last seen heading towards Idylwyld. The Air Support Unit was in the air and was able to find the truck as it continued driving recklessly in the Quebec Ave and 37th St area. Ground units were not close and the Air Support Unit did a great job continuing to track the odd behavior of the truck as it sped out toward Highway 16 West, crossed the ditch driving back into the city toward Ave C north and finally stopping in the alley near Ave B and 27th St. The 2 occupants were seen getting on bikes taken from the back of the truck and fleeing the area. Air Support Unit was able to assist K9 in tracking down one occupant who was arrested at Av D and 25th St and a ground unit arrested the second suspect at 24th St and Ave C. The truck was later found to be stolen as was the Alberta license plate that was on it. Two 30 year old males are facing numerous charges as the investigation continues.
