Innisfail RCMP thank public for their help

Footprints in freshly fallen snow helped Innisfail RCMP make an arrest after a break and enter.

Police said many Innisfail residents woke up to find suspicious footprints in the snow on their property and near their vehicles March 31.

Police said a string of offences led them to a stolen vehicle. Police then tracked the suspect to his home and arrested a man in possession of stolen property, identity and vehicle documents, and a substance believed to be methamphetamine.

Lincoln Charles Capel, 34, of Red Deer, was charged with several offences, including two counts of breaking and entering with intent.

Capel was remanded into custody to appear in court on Tuesday.

Police want to recognize members of the public who reported these activities and provided video surveillance, which was instrumental in the investigation.
