Two people have been charged, after fleeing police last week.
Last Wednesday (October 10, 2018), police were called to Webster, Alberta, where a suspicious man's vehicle was stuck in a ditch.
An investigation revealed the truck in the ditch was stolen, along with two other vehicles involved in the ensuing pursuit.
Officers called in air support, and help from other detachments, including Dawson Creek and Spirit River, and soon found the suspect's truck from the air.
The truck then collided with two RCMP vehicles and stopped near Bonanza.
As a result, a 16-year-old female has been charged with Possession of Property Obtained by Crime.
35-year-old Matthew James Bergeson of Hythe is facing numerous charges, including Possession of Property Obtained by Crime over $5,000, Theft of a Motor Vehicle, and Failing to stop for Police.
In addition, Bergeson has over 20 charges from various incidents that occurred in Grande Prairie and Beaverlodge since September 30th, 2018. 
These charges include Robbery, Arson, Mischief, Assault Causing Bodily Harm, Uttering Threats, and multiple firearms offences.
