Lloydminster RCMP have arrested 2 people from Onion Lake for possession of stolen property.
On Sunday, January 17th, the Crime Reduction Unit with the RCMP was doing a routine curfew check in the area of 57A Avenue and 30 street, when a concerned citizen alerted police to two people seen checking vehicles. Police located the 2 suspects actively breaking into a truck box.
Both individuals attempted to flee when confronted but were eventually apprehended and the stolen property was recovered. 24-year-old, Nathan John, and 22-year-old, Destiny Fleming, both of Onion Lake have been charged with mischief, resisting arrest, possession of stolen property, and theft under $5,000.
Constable Edwin Smith of the Lloydminster RCMP Crime Reduction Unit says, “This is a perfect example of how the community and police can actively work together to reduce crime within the City of Lloydminster. We encourage the public to call police right away if they observe suspicious people or activity occurring in their neighbourhood, as citizens of the community ultimately are the eyes and ears for the police.”
Fleming was released and will appear in Alberta Provincial Court on Tuesday, March 8th, 2016. John was brought before a Justice of the Peace and released on cash bail.
