Stettler RCMP made an arrest on Highway 12 in west Stettler on Monday, causing a noon-hour stir for passersby.
Three members of the Stettler RCMP detachment were involved in the interception of a man the Innisfail RCMP had reported at large.
Witnesses said the officers had their weapons drawn when they made the arrest.
Sgt. Duncan Babchuk of the Stettler detachment said Innisfail RCMP asked Stettler RCMP to intercept “a person of interest” wanted in connection with “a serious incident” at Innisfail.
Police were advised the suspect was believed to have been approaching the Stettler area, so Stettler RCMP were instructed to make the arrest, Babchuk said.
He said the suspect — a 31-year-old — was taken into custody without incident shortly before 1 p.m.
