A number of recent property crime arrests by Red Deer RCMP have resulted in numerous charges and the execution of multiple warrants, and in many cases were thanks to the vigilance of staff at various businesses and members of the public who called RCMP to report suspected criminal activity.

Shortly before 4 p.m. on Nov. 9th, RCMP were called to a bank in the City, where a man was in the process of attempting to open an account with identification the caller believed was not his. RCMP attended and confirmed that the suspect was in possession of three pieces of identification that had been reported stolen in a wallet theft several months earlier in Red Deer. At the time of his arrest, the suspect was also wanted on four outstanding warrants for assault, forcible confinement and failing to appear in court.

William Joseph Lagrelle, 41, has been charged with identity fraud, identity theft, resisting/obstructing a peace officer, three counts of possession of stolen property under $5,000 and failing to comply with conditions.

Shortly after 9 p.m. on Nov. 10th, RCMP attended 5405 50th Ave. in response to a report of suspicious activity. Staff in the business on the main floor reported hearing sounds from the suite above, which was unoccupied. RCMP located two suspects who were both wanted on a number of outstanding warrants and arrested them without incident.

Joel David Bremner, 45, was wanted on three warrants at the time of his arrest under the Trespass to Premise Act, the Gaming and Liquor Act, and for failing to attend (fingerprints). He now faces additional charges including another charge under the Trespass to Premise Act, possession of methamphetamine and possession of stolen property under $5,000.

Aaron James LeBlanc, 33, was also arrested on three outstanding warrants for assault and uttering threats.

Shortly before 9 a.m. on Nov. 11th, RCMP were called to a residence in Eastview when a caller reported suspicious activity at a neighbouring property. RCMP attended and located the suspect several blocks from the scene, where he was arrested without incident. During the course of the investigation, RCMP determined that nine garages had been broken into in the space of a few hours within a two block radius in Eastview. Much of the stolen property was located stacked in an alley, and was returned to the victims. RCMP continue to investigate.

Lincoln Charles Capel, 31, has been charged with breaking, entering and committing an indictable offense, failing to comply with conditions and two counts of possession of schedule one substance.

At the time of his arrest, the suspect was wanted on seven outstanding warrants for failing to comply with conditions, break and enter, and mischief.

At 5:30 a.m. on Nov. 13th, RCMP responded to a break-in in progress at Bad Ass Jack’s on 67th St., where police located and arrested a suspect as he attempted to leave the business carrying a cash register and various food products from the restaurant.

Kyle Kevin Vaine, 38, has been charged with breaking, entering and committing an indictable offense, theft under $5,000, possession of break-in tools and failing to comply with an undertaking.
