An alert public tip led Wetaskiwin RCMP Crime Reduction Unit (CRU) to launch an investigation into a residential property believed to be housing stolen property. As a result, a solar light tower, valued at over $50,000, and stolen from the Coronation area in 2019, was recovered.
On Jan. 16, 2021 the Wetaskiwin CRU with assistance from Camrose RCMP, and RCMP Auto Theft Unit conducted a search warrant at a residence on Highway 833 in Camrose County to recover the above referenced stolen property.
A 31-year-old male of Leduc County was arrested and charged with one count of possession of property obtained by crime over 5,000 and one count of trafficking property obtained by crime over 5,000.
He is scheduled to appear in Camrose Provincial Court on March 3, 2021.
