GRANDE PRAIRIE, AB -- A man who fled from police in Fort St. John is now facing more charges in Alberta.

Darin Loeppky was wanted by Fort St. John police after he escaped arrest on October 20th. He was also wanted for possession of stolen property, possession of stolen property over $5000 and breach of release order.

On November 5th, Loeppky was arrested in Grande Prairie. Police discovered a Silver Dodge flat deck truck which was suspected of being involved in multiple criminal occurrences in Fort St. John and Dawson Creek. Those criminal occurrences included ramming a police vehicle and fleeing from police.

Grande Prairie RCMP attempted to stop the truck, but it fled from police. Loeppky and the vehicle’s other occupant, 41-year old Chantal McDonald from Beaverlodge, eventually abandoned the vehicle and attempted to flee on foot. Both were arrested.

Police also determined that the vehicle had been stolen from Wembley in August.

Loeppky and McDonald were both charged with possession of stolen property over $5000. Loeppky was also charged with flight from police, failure to comply with a release order, and unlawful possession of a government identity document. These charges are in addition to his outstanding warrants in British Columbia.

Loeppky was released from custody for his Alberta charges after a judicial interim release hearing, and is scheduled to appear in Grande Prairie provincial court on November 28th. However, he was transported back to BC and remains in custody in this province. His next BC court appearance is scheduled for December 1st.
