Sylvan Lake RCMP said they were called to the Fairway Estates Condominium that day for a reported break and enter. Their investigation determined two suspects broke into the parkade and rummaged through unlocked vehicles stealing items. The suspects also broke into storage lockers. The two suspects were caught on video as they spent more than an hour in the parkade. Police identified a vehicle from the incident, which led them to arrest Muranaka.
