Two people have been charged after they tried to sell $19,000 in saddles at the Innisfail Auction Mart.
Earlier this week, Innisfail RCMP were contacted by the RCMP’s livestock section. They said there may be stolen property being sold by two individuals at the auction mart.
Working in partnership, Innisfail RCMP, Nanton RCMP and the RCMP livestock section identified and arrested a male and female suspect.
They also recovered about $19,000 in saddles stolen from a ranch near Okotoks and returned them to the owner.
A 24-year-old Calgary female is charged with trafficking in property obtained by crime over $5,000, possession of methamphetamine and four counts of failing to comply with conditions.
