Man Wanted On Charges in Whitecourt and Barrhead Facing Attempted Murder Charges
A man with a lengthy rap sheet, tying him to Whitecourt, Barrhead, Edmonton Metro and central Alberta is facing attempted murder charges in the Devon area.
George Siemens, who was already in custody, was re-arrested January 17th while awaiting trial at the Edmonton Remand Centre.
Siemens was picked up in Barrhead last October, wanted in connection to several break and enters.
The attempted murder charges stem from a gunshot directed towards a stationary vehicle in Devon last August. The single shot struck the gas pump and no body was injured. A shortwhile later, a blue Toyota Tundra was driving and allegedly fired a round at a stopped vehicle.
That Tundra was later found abandoned south of Devon.
Wolverines, Community Approach One Year Mark Of Tragic Events
December 19th, 2016 was a tragic day for the Spruce Grove and Whitecourt areas. That was when Ryder and Radek MacDougall became the victims of a murder suicide at the hands of their Father.
Tomorrow, the Whitecourt Wolverines encourage fans and community members to come out to the Scott Safety Centre at 2:00 pm to paint messages of tribute on the ice ahead of the Wolverines game that evening.
Voice of the Wolverines, Andrew Peard, says there are other things planned through the night.
The messages painted on the rink will be sealed throughout the day and the Wolverines and Saints will play overtop of them when their game starts tomorrow.
