Red Deer, Alberta – Red Deer RCMP arrested a Red Deer man who was wanted on warrants and was breaching his probation after he attempted to steal a donation can from Sunnybrook Farm last week.
On May 28 at 2:20 am, RCMP responded to a report of two suspicious men at Sunnybrook Farm Museum who were attempting to remove a large cream can used as a donation can; one of those men had been caught on camera at the farm the day before, also attempting to steal a cream can. The men were no longer on scene when RCMP arrived, but police located a suspicious truck parked nearby and conducted a traffic stop; the driver was wanted on a warrant out of Blackfalds and was breaching his court-imposed curfew conditions, and police arrested him without incident. On receiving the surveillance footage from Sunnybrook Farm shortly afterward, police further identified him as one of the suspects in that file.
A 39 year old Red Deer man faces Criminal Code charges of breach of probation, trespassing and mischief. His name cannot be published at this time as the charges have not yet been sworn before the courts.
