RCMP in Whitecourt arrested over a dozen people on outstanding warrants last week during a one-day blitz project targeting people known to be wanted in the area.
On December 14th, the one-day event of targeted enforcement led to the arrest of ten wanted individuals. The inquiries made by police led to an additional three persons turning themselves in at the Whitecourt Detachment.
In total, 13 individuals were arrested after 23 warrants were executed.
The focus of the project was to bring the known persons back to court, and RCMP say they are still attempting to locate more individuals on outstanding warrants.
If you know the location of any wanted persons, please contact Whitecourt RCMP at (780) 778-5454, your local police, or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).
