Olds RCMP busy to start 2020

Olds RCMP has started the new year investigating a number of unrelated incidents.

On Dec. 27, RCMP were informed several units in a residential complex were broken into. Witnesses later told police they saw suspects enter homes and load several items into a truck and utility trailer.

Following an investigation, RCMP obtained a search warrant for a Didsbury residence. The warrant was executed this past Sunday. Several items related to the break and enters were recovered.

Michael Ryan Goodine, 43, of Sundre, has been charged with 14 offences, including breaking and entering, possession of stolen property and failing to comply with release orders. He will appear in Didsbury provincial court Thursday.

The following day, Timothy Michael Doyle, 44, of no fixed address, was also arrested in connection with this break and enter investigation and other property crime matters.

He is charged with possession of stolen property and will appear in court Jan. 27.

On Friday, police received a report of a suspicious motorist broken down east of Olds on Highway 27, near Highway 791. When officers arrived, they found a man in possession of a Subaru Forester, which was stolen out of Calgary.

Daemond Anthony Glenn, 27, of Airdrie, was arrested and charged with possession of stolen property. He’ll appear in court Feb. 24.

Also on Jan. 3, Olds RCMP was informed of a suspicious vehicle in Bowden. Officers attended the scene and located an unoccupied 2010 Chevrolet Silverado and two firearms that were stolen out of Red Deer.

Police say the man who had been in possession of the truck entered a Bowden residence. A warrant was obtained to enter the residence – the driver of the truck was located inside.

Brandon Edmond Wegner, 29, of Red Deer, was arrested and charged with possession of stolen property and two counts of breaching recognizance.

On Monday, at about 5:20 a.m., RCMP received a complaint of a suspicious male and vehicle on a rural property southeast of Olds.

The male reportedly went to the door of a residence and asked the homeowner for gas. Police say the homeowner refused “due to suspicious behaviour of the male and then called RCMP.”

The officer responding to the scene located a 2005 GMC Sierra on the property. The vehicle was stolen out of Airdrie.

The officer and local farmers tracked the suspect’s footprints and found him hiding in a wooded area.

David Alfred Matschke, 37, of no fixed address, was arrested and charged with theft and possession of stolen property. He’s set to appear in court Jan. 20.
