ALERT nabs Edmonton man wanted for assaults against children

April 26, 2012

Edmonton… ALERT’s Fugitive Apprehension Sheriffs Support Team (FASST) has apprehended a 36-year-old Edmonton man wanted on warrants for assault against two children.

Oliver Wilbert Bugle was arrested in dowtown Edmonton last night following a request for assistance from the ZEBRA Child Protection Centre. FASST tracked Bugle throughout the city and apprehended him shortly after 9 p.m.

On April 24, the Edmonton Police Service asked for the public’s assistance in locating Bugle who was alleged to have assaulted two children that had been left in his care.

Edmonton Police Service members assisted FASST with the arrest of Bugle.

FASST tracks and arrests criminals who are wanted on outstanding warrants in Alberta and have previously evaded capture. The team plays an important role in promoting safe, secure communities by arresting criminals who evade capture and decreasing the likelihood of them re-offending and re-victimizing Albertans. The support of FASST allows local police more time and resources to focus on other priorities like community policing and criminal investigations.

ALERT encourages the public to report suspicious activity or tips regarding people wanted on outstanding warrants by calling police or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).

Made up of provincial sheriffs and RCMP, FASST is an ALERT team funded by the Government of Alberta. FASST works with other ALERT units to tackle serious and organized crime around the province. Over 400 municipal police, RCMP and sheriffs work for ALERT.
