Around 8:10 pm on May 17, an off-duty St. Albert RCMP officer reported they had almost been struck by a vehicle that ran a red light on Ray Gibbon Drive. A member on duty spotted the suspect vehicle, a gray 2003 Audi A4, driving northbound on Northridge Drive, Mounties said.

RCMP said the officer followed the vehicle, activated their emergency equipment and attempted to stop the car. The vehicle tried to flee from the officer by turning onto Natalia Way, then onto Nemo Terrace and pulled into a driveway of a home.

St. Albert RCMP pulled in behind the gray Audi parked in the driveway and told both occupants to exit the vehicle.

Amy Actimichuk, 37, the driver of the Audi, is charged with possession for the purpose of trafficking methamphetamine, possession of property obtained by crime, flight from police, and three counts of operation of a motor vehicle while prohibited and seven counts of fail to comply with release order conditions.

The 26-year-old passenger, Cheyenne Smith, is charged with possession for the purpose of trafficking methamphetamine and fails to comply with release order conditions.

The two women are scheduled to appear in St. Albert provincial court on June 20.
