TABER, AB – Two men from Taber have been arrested and charged after trying to evade police in a stolen kayak.
RCMP say a truck was stolen in Taber last Saturday, September 11th and was seen driving around the region that same day.
Officers later found the vehicle stuck in a field outside of Barnwell.
A police dog was called in and tracked two men to the Oldman River where they were seen trying to get into a cabin. The pair then allegedly stole a kayak and attempted to make a getaway down the river.
That failed though and the two were arrested.
Mounties say 23 year old Pedro Friesen and 24 year old Tristan Wolfe after facing a list of charges.
They’ve been released to appear in court in Taber later this month.
