Two people from Red Deer, aged 34 and 36, have been charged with numerous offences including break and enter, theft, carrying a concealed weapon, and possession of methamphetamine for the purpose of trafficking.
Two people from Red Deer, AB, are each facing more than 30 charges after a string of events that kept several RCMP detachments busy in Saskatchewan on June 21.
Saskatchewan RCMP said in a news release that around 5 a.m. that day officers in Kindersley were called to an alarm at a business, where it was found that a number of electronics had been stolen.
Then, around 6:30 a.m., Rosetown RCMP received a report of a group of “suspicious vehicles travelling close together on a local grid road at a high rate of speed” — they then found that these were six new vehicles stolen from a local dealership.
Later that day, police said two people were arrested in Luseland in relation to the Rosetown stolen vehicles, and officers found a number of electronics, license plates and tools. Two firearms reported stolen in Alberta in May, ammunition, and a quantity of methamphetamine and GHB were also found.
Police said that some of the electronics were the ones reported stolen in the earlier Kindersley break-in.
Two people, aged 34 and 36, have been charged with numerous offences including break and enter, theft, possession of weapon for a dangerous purpose, carrying a concealed weapon, dangerous operation of a motor vehicle, and possession of methamphetamine for the purpose of trafficking.
Both were remanded in custody and were scheduled to appear in Saskatoon Provincial Court on Monday.
Police are working to return the stolen items to owners and said that anyone missing power tools or hand tools inscribed with initials, or a socket set should call the Kindersley RCMP at 306-463-4642.
Police said that Saskatchewan RCMP’s Kindersley, Kerrobert, Biggar, Maidstone, Battleford and Cut Knife RCMP detachments and Roving Traffic Unit, Alberta RCMP’s Provost and Red Deer detachments and Luseland Police Service assisted in the investigation.
