Red Deer man and woman facing more than 140 charges in court

Pair arrested following RCMP and Edmonton Police Service joint operation in November 2019

The case of a Red Deer man and woman facing 141 charges between them was in court Thursday.

Savannah Korth, 23, who is facing 64 mostly drug- and stolen property-related charges, appeared through a closed-circuit video link with Fort Saskatchewan Correctional Centre.

Bail was previously denied for Korth.

Connor Mueller, 26, who is facing 77 charges, was represented by his Red Deer lawyer Randy MacDonald, who told Red Deer provincial court Judge Bert Skinner he is still awaiting disclosure information on the case.

Mueller and Korth were arrested following a joint investigation with Edmonton Police Service and the K Division emergency response team last November.

The investigation was triggered by a report of a stolen wallet in Red Deer and a related fraudulent vehicle purchase in Edmonton.

On Nov. 13, police with a search warrant descended on a home in Red Deer’s Inglewood subdivision.

Korth was arrested in a stolen vehicle. Two rifles, stolen police equipment, two-way radios and stolen Alberta licence plates were seized from inside the vehicle.

Mueller was allegedly found hiding in the residence. Eleven firearms, hundreds of rounds of ammunition, drugs and paraphernalia, a stolen laptop, a vehicle that was allegedly fraudulently purchased and stolen identification were seized.

The case returns to court on March 5.
