Red Deer RCMP arrest man in string of liquor store thefts

A Red Deer man, who was caught in a series of liquor bottle thefts going back to August, appears in court today.

The suspect was caught on camera multiple times for stealing liquor bottles from the Real Canadian Liquor Store in Red Deer. In one incident, the suspect allegedly assaulted a staff person who attempted to stop him. The employee did not suffer any significant injuries.

42-year-old man, Marty Roy, faces 17 counts of theft and one of robbery.

“Red Deer RCMP have been working to identify this prolific offender for several months, and that work paid off this week,” says Corp. Karyn Kay of the Red Deer RCMP.

“Our Pinpoint crime reduction strategies are all about identifying those repeat offenders whose actions continue to negatively impact our community, and putting them before the courts.”
