Two of the carjackers were taken into custody on Wednesday after stealing vehicles at the intersection of Sturgeon Road and St. Albert Trail and on Marion Crescent.
One man was charged with possession of property obtained by crime and possession of break-in instruments, police said. He was released from custody on an undertaking.
The other man was released without charges.
Police have not found the 2007 red Jeep Compass with Alberta licence plate CHV 5953 believed to have been in possession of the third person involved in the carjackings.
"If seen please do not approach the vehicle, and call police immediately," St. Albert RCMP said of the vehicle stolen on Marion Crescent.

- Footage of Sturgeon Road/St. Anne Street and St. Albert Trail between 8 and 9 a.m.; and
- Footage in the Mission subdivision and St. Vital Avenue between 8:45 and 11 a.m. that shows the Jeep Compass and the other vehicle stolen, a 2014 blue Toyota Corolla.
Anyone with surveillance footage or information about the carjackings that placed all nearby schools in a hold and secure that morning is asked to call police at 780-458-7700 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
