Crime Report: Week of June 22

Two businesses in the lakeland area had break and enter’s this week: one in Kehewin and one in Fort Kent. No charges have been laid and they are still under investigation.

On June 17, police responded to a collision involving an intoxicated driver in the parking lot of Player’s Lounge on 50th Ave. The 38-year-old male from Wabasca refused to do a roadside test and was charged with failing to provide a test. The refusal carries an equal penalty to being over the limit.

A 42-year-old male from Nova Scotia was arrested for mischief last Saturday for breaking windows at the Southview Motel in Bonnyville. RCMP charged the individual and there is no court date set at the moment.

RCMP are asking the public for any information after a residential theft in La Corey happened sometime earlier this month. The homeowner had thousands of dollars of fishing equipment stolen from his boat on his property between June 3-16. The investigation is open.

A 29-year-old female was charged with possession of stolen property and an outstanding warrant Monday afternoon in Bonnyville. The police were called after a suspicious person was outside of The Brick, and she was subsequently arrested. Her court date is on Monday.

This morning police were called to a house in Kehewin about a truck that was hiding in the bushes behind the resident’s house. The RCMP determined that the vehicle was stolen from St. Paul. It is still under investigation.
