Trial Postponed for Man Charged in Vulcan County Police Chase

A trial that was scheduled to proceed on Tuesday (May 14), for a man accused of taking police on a chase through Vulcan County, has been adjourned to this fall.

Tyrone Emblau, 34, was charged in March last year after he allegedly stole a truck, trailer and snowmobile and fled from RCMP in a rural area. He's facing a total of 18 charges for the incident and was also wanted for 29 other outstanding warrants.

Both the Crown and defence noting on Tuesday (May 14) that the trial would take longer than expected. Judge Eric Peterson indicated that he will not be available this summer, and prefers to hear the matter all at one time.

Emblau's trial has now been set for Oct. 9 through 11 in Lethbridge Provincial Court.

In the meantime, he has been released on $5,000 bail, on the conditions that he live under supervision in Redcliff, he must report to RCMP twice per week, he cannot consume any intoxicating substances and he cannot be in a vehicle without the registered owner.
