Police in Wainwright have charged three suspects following a home-invasion which they believe was targeted.
On Sept. 14, officers were called to a home invasion in the town in which they reported that a gun was involved.
Investigators determined that three suspects were involved and two of them were known to the victim. The suspects left in the victim’s vehicle, say police. Wainwright RCMP notified area detachments of the incident.
The following day, Kitscoty RCMP saw the suspect vehicle at a home in the Paradise Valley area. They report at least one of the suspects was inside the vehicle.
Kitscoty RCMP, with help from the Vermilion Detachment, Vermilion Traffic Unit, EAD Crime Reduction Unit and St. Paul Police Dog Service, were able to find and arrest the three suspects.
Skye Martin, 29 of Paradise Valley, Corinne Chaisson, 23 of Wainwright and Steven Brazeau 31 of Slave Lake, were charged with various offences including robbery with a firearm, assault with a weapon and possession of a stolen vehicle.
