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.

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