Three Red Deer suspects charged after break-and-enter in Lacombe

Two males and a female charged with possession of stolen property

Three suspects from Red Deer were charged by police after a break-in and theft at a Lacombe business.

Officers from the Lacombe Police Service were notified an alarm had gone off at a business at Unit 5, 4801-63rd Street at about 4:30 a.m. on Jan. 10.

Police arrived in time to see a vehicle with three occupants leaving the area. The vehicle was immediately pulled over, while other officers examined the business.

Some electronic items were found missing from the commercial site. The same stolen property was discovered in the vehicle, which also contained items connected to two previous break-ins. Police also seized a loaded sawed-off shotgun and counterfeit currency.

Two males and one female, all from Red Deer, were arrested and charged with numerous offences, including break and enter and theft, and possession of break-in instruments, stolen property and counterfeit money.

Two males, age 36 and 26, were taken into police custody, and will appear in Red Deer provincial court on Jan. 20. The 20-year-old female was released and will appear in court on Feb. 11.
