Red Deer RCMP recover three stolen vehicles

Thirty-nine people were arrested during a four-day warrant roundup by Red Deer RCMP.

Police said officers executed 121 warrants, clearing a total of 163 charges, as well as recovering three stolen vehicles.

Between Dec. 10 and 13, police targeted repeat offenders linked to property and drug offences.

“Warrant roundups are a tool that we continue to use because they are effective. As a part of Project Pinpoint, the Red Deer RCMP’s targeted crime reduction strategy, we use roundups to let our repeat offenders know that if they continue to commit crimes, we will catch them,” said RCMP Sgt. Karyn Kay.
