Innisfail RCMP arrest man after reported thefts

Innisfail RCMP arrested a man after items were stolen from a library’s shed and inside a vehicle.

On Oct. 8 at 9:43 a.m., police received a report of a shed being broken into at the Innisfail Public Library – some items were reported missing. The same day, RCMP took a report from a resident of the Days Inn hotel whose vehicle was broken into – a work computer and some other items were stolen.

On Oct. 12 at 10:30 p.m., Innisfail RCMP responded to a report of a suspicious person in Penhold. When officers arrived, they spotted a man that matched the description given by the complainant.

The man was seen rummaging through a vehicle in a parking lot, police said. RCMP began investigating and learned the man did not own the vehicle. He was then arrested.

Items located during the investigation were believed to be related to the previous thefts from the library and Days Inn in Innisfail.

Joshua Darryl Pepin, 30, of no fixed address, is charged with mischief, possession of property obtained by crime, possessing a controlled substance and driving and uninsured motor vehicle.

He is scheduled to appear in Red Deer Provincial Court Nov. 26 at 8:30 a.m.
