A Clairmont man has been sentenced to three years in prison following a 2018 break and enter and police chase.
Earlier this month in a Grande Prairie courtroom, Kendall Kruger was given a four and a half year sentence less time served of 18 months for breaking and enter and failing to stop for police. He was also given a lifetime firearms ban and a one-year licence suspension.
On July 3rd, 2018 two men allegedly broke into a home in South Patterson around 3:45 a.m., assaulted someone and forced them into a vehicle that led officers on a chase that ended south of Crooked Creek.
Kruger was originally also charged with kidnapping, uttering threats, resisting a police officer, mischief under $5,000 and carrying a weapon for a dangerous purpose. Those charges were all withdrawn.
A second man charged in connection with the crime, Andrew Schurman, will appear in court on October 7th for a preliminary hearing to determine if there’s enough evidence to go to trial.
