Ponoka RCMP recovered two stolen trucks and a utility trailer on a rural property during a warrant roundup in Central Alberta on Nov. 30.

RCMP said 12 people were arrested, 19 arrest warrants were executed and two new breach charges were laid after police departments in Ponoka, Maskwacis and Wetaskiwin and the Central Alberta district crime reduction unit pooled resources.

Three people were arrested during the search, and two of them were charged in connection to the stolen property outside Ponoka.

A 33-year-old man and a 30-year-old woman were both charged with three counts of possession of stolen property over $5,000 and failing to comply with a condition of an undertaking.

“This roundup showed positive results, and the recovery of stolen property even more so,” said Ponoka RCMP Sgt. Chris Smiley.

“We intend to be relentless in implementing different crime reduction strategies, and this cross-border collaboration was just one of those strategies.”
