Innisfail RCMP recovered a large amount of stolen property after arresting six suspects last week.
Gary Auvigne 45, Thomas Larkin 41, Katherine Young, 29, Adam Bogusky, 36 and Kameryne Boyd, 21, all from Red Deer, face multiple charges in relation to the stolen items. Among the list of seized items were guns, ammunition, dirt bike, stolen tools, break-in tools and other weapons.
RCMP originally responded to an attempted home invasion on Feb. 18 and identified the suspects. The following day, police attended a property in Red Deer County, to arrest the suspects. One was arrested while the other fled in a Ford F350, with two other passengers. The truck was recently stolen from Saskatchewan.
The truck travelled all the way to a location near Pigeon Lake, where the three occupants were picked up by a second Ford dually pickup truck. RCMP observed the second truck as it travelled back to Red Deer where all five occupants were arrested at two different locations in the city.
On Feb. 20, RCMP conducted a search of the property in Red Deer County and seized the stolen property that was related to various crimes across central Alberta.
Auvigne is facing over 20 criminal code charges, including break and enter, use of a firearm while committing an offence, utter threats, possession of a stolen firearm and breach of a release document.
Larkin, is facing 17 charges including break and enter, possession of a stolen vehicle, possession of break-in tools, flight from police and dangerous driving.

Auvigne and Larkin were held in custody pending Judicial Interim Release hearings scheduled for Feb. 26 in Red Deer Provincial Court.
