UPDATE: Arrests made after theft of electronic devices and computers

Red Deer RCMP continue to investigate after break-in at Alberta Energy Regulator office

Red Deer RCMP have charged one man regarding the break-in and theft of numerous electronics at the Alberta Energy Regulator office on Oct. 30th thanks to numerous public tips and have issued warrants for the arrest of a second man.

The break-in at 5002 55th St. was discovered at 7 a.m. by staff, and multiple electronic devices and computers were stolen. RCMP attended immediately and the Red Deer RCMP forensic identification unit spent the day investigating the scene.

RCMP identified two suspects early into the investigation thanks to dozens of tips from the public. On Nov. 30th RCMP on patrol in an area known for criminal activity observed one of the suspects walking, and arrested him without incident.

One man, a 41-year-old, faces the charges of breaking, entering and committing, mischief over $5,000 and possession of schedule III substance (methamphetamine)

A 38-year-old man is wanted on warrants for the charges of breaking, entering and committing and mischief over $5,000.

Red Deer RCMP have tentatively identified the third suspect and continue to investigate, and thank the public for their assistance throughout this investigation.
