Pedestrian hit in crosswalk


Pedestrian struck by vehicle

A driver has been charged after a collision with a pedestrian, who was walking in a marked crosswalk.

On Tuesday  at around 7:30 a.m. the RCMP responded to a report of a motor vehicle collision involving a pedestrian at McKenney Avenue at Muir Drive.

The 58-year-old male pedestrian was taken to hospital with non-life threatening injuries. The 58-year-old female driver stopped and remained on scene.

The driver has been charged for failing to yield to a pedestrian in a marked crosswalk.

Parkade break and enter and theft

The St. Albert RCMP is asking the public for help to identify people responsible for a parkade break and enter and theft.

Sometime between 11 p.m. on Nov. 26 and 6:30 a.m. on Nov. 27 the secure underground parkade at the Botanica condo complex at 200 Bellerose Drive was broken into.

It was reported that several items were stolen from the parkade, including a Trek Fuel EX mountain bike with a white frame and studded tires, valuables left in locked and unlocked vehicles and a 2013 black SUV Mercedes Benz that has since been recovered in the Spruce Grove area.

The St. Albert RCMP has released images of two suspects caught on video surveillance cameras.

The RCMP is also reminding residents to always remove their valuables from their vehicles. It is a misconception that vehicles parked in a secure underground parking garage are safe and it’s important that the community attempts to prevent these avoidable thefts from occurring.

The police say the best way to keep your vehicle safe is to always wait for the door to close when exiting or entering an apartment or condo parkade.

The police recommend always keeping vehicles locked to discourage thieves from entering and searching through the glove box and they say never to leave anything in view.

They also suggest not storing registration and insurance in the car but to always carry it with you to protect against identity theft.

Anyone with information about these or any other crimes is asked to contact St. Albert RCMP at 780-458-7700. Anonymous tips can be provided to Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or at
