The Priority Crimes Task Force executed a search warrant at a rural Rimbey area residence on May 5th after Rimbey RCMP located several stolen vehicles at the property the day before.

Rimbey RCMP attended the property the afternoon of May 4th looking for the resident, who was wanted on two outstanding warrants. On arrival, police officers noted two stolen vehicles in plain view on the property.

At that point, Rimbey RCMP brought in the Priority Crimes Task Force to assist with obtaining and executing a search warrant for the property. At approximately 8 a.m. on May 5th, RCMP executed the search warrant at a property on Township Road 421A in Ponoka County. The property was secured and searched with the support of police officers from Rimbey RCMP, Ponoka RCMP, Rocky Mountain House RCMP and Red Deer RCMP General Investigative Section.

During the search of the property and its outbuildings, RCMP recovered a 2017 Subaru that had been reported stolen out of Ponoka on April 25th, a 2006 Big Tex flat deck trailer that had been reported stolen out of Consort on April 24th, a 2005 Caterpillar 420D back hoe that had been reported stolen out of Consort on April 27th and two quads that were reported stolen out of Rimbey on May 2nd.

At 1:30 p.m. on May 16th, Rimbey RCMP located the suspect in a stolen truck near the residence and arrested him without incident. The truck had been reported stolen out of Red Deer on May 10th.

Bradley James Mulder, 44, of Ponoka County, has been charged with three counts of possession of property obtained by crime, two counts of possession of property obtained by crime over $5,000 and possession of property obtained by crime.

Priority Crimes Task Force members continue to investigate and RCMP will issue updates if new information becomes available.

“The stolen vehicles we recovered represent criminal activity that impacted at least four communities,” said Sgt. Kurtis Pillipow of the Rimbey RCMP. “Rimbey RCMP are committed to working with our Priority Crimes Task Force partners to reduce the impact of property crimes and stem that flow of stolen property across our jurisdictions.”
