Cold Lake RCMP make Significant Arrests during Crime Reduction Initiative

Cold Lake RCMP were conducting a warrant apprehension, crime reduction initiative, on February 27-28th. RCMP were able to arrest wanted man, Kelly Janvier, as well as make two other significant arrests.

“We executed another arrest warrant for Kelly Janvier,” confirms Staff Sergaent Jeremie Landry, with the Cold Lake detachment. Janvier was wanted for charges of possession of stolen property, over $5,000, possession of stolen property under $5,000 and breaching a recognizance. The charges stem from an incident on February 2nd, where a truck was stolen from the Marina Mall and ended up in the ditch. Janvier is suspected of being one of the two suspects in the case.

Janvier appeared in St. Paul Provincial Court on March 1st. The appearance was put over to Cold Lake Provincial Court for March 14th. Janvier remains in custody until his next court appearance.

In addition to the Janvier arrest, Cold Lake RCMP made two more significant arrests during the crime reduction initiative.

“We were attending one residence in Cold Lake First Nations, attempted to execute an arrest warrant. While we were there we ended up coming across an individual who was in possession of a stolen Ford F-350, out of Edmonton,” S/Sgt. Jeremie Landry, explains the officers ended up arresting a different individual than who they had originally went to the residence to arrest.

Arrested was a 42 year old male, from the Cold Lake First Nations. The man was found with possession of methamphetamine at the time of his arrest. The vehicle was stolen out of Edmonton, making it an Edmonton Police Services investigation.

Charges are pending against the male for possession of property obtained by crime, over $5,000, failing to comply with a recognizance and possession of meth.

As part of the same initiative, RCMP also attended a residence in Cold Lake and arrested a male with outstanding warrants for breaching probation, confirms S/Sgt. Landry.
