Drumheller RCMP Arrest Suspects Following Suspicious Persons Complaint

 


IMG 4400On June 6th, 2024, at approximately 11:00 am, Drumheller RCMP received a complaint of 2 suspicious males on a quad on Township Road 302 west of Michichi, Alberta. It was reported that the males appeared to be in possession of copper wire and other equipment.

Drumheller RCMP members attended the area and attempted to stop the quad but the quad fled from police by driving through ditches and fields. As a result, additional RCMP members converged on the area and initiated an operation to locate the suspects. Eventually, the 2 suspects were located on foot on the outskirts of Michichi and taken into custody; the quad and other evidence was located and recovered on a nearby abandoned railway line.

Further investigation found that one suspect was bound by multiple court orders including a Conditional Sentence Order, Probation Orders, a Release Order, and an Undertaking. The second suspect was bound by an Undertaking.

42 year old Jesse BULECHOWSKY of Starland County and 33 year old Douglas MCCLURE of no fixed address were jointly charged with:

Fail to Stop for a Peace Officer while being Pursued.

BULECHOWSKY was also charged with:

Fail to Comply with Probation – 3 Counts;
Dangerous Operation of a Conveyance; and
Operate a Conveyance while Prohibited.

MCCLURE was also charged with:

Fail to Comply with an Undertaking.

Both BULECHOWSKY and MCCLURE were taken before a Justice of the Peace for a Judicial interim Release Hearing and:

BULECHOWSKY was remanded into custody and is scheduled to appear in the Alberta Court of Justice on June 10th, 2024 in Didsbury to answer to the charges.
MCCLURE was released from custody on a Release Order and is scheduled to appear in the Alberta Court of Justice on July 12th, 2024 in Drumheller to answer to the charges.
