KINDERSLEY – An Alberta man has been charged with theft of an ATM earlier this year in Saskatchewan.
Earlier this fall, Leader RCMP charged an adult male in relation to their ongoing investigation into a break-and-enter and theft of an ATM in their detachment area in July 2023. A warrant was issued for his arrest and Leader RCMP worked to locate him.
On Nov. 19, an investigation by Kindersley RCMP determined a vehicle reported as stolen from Unity was parked outside a business in Kindersley. A man was arrested nearby. He was determined to be the man wanted by Leader RCMP.
Kindersley RCMP then executed a search warrant in Kindersley and located and seized tools as well as a trailer that was determined to be stolen. Officers have returned some of the items to their owners and are working to return further items.
As a result of further investigation, Kindersley RCMP charged the man in relation to thefts that were reported recently in Coleville, the possession of the stolen vehicle, as well as the theft of an ATM in Eatonia reported in July 2023.
The 36-year-old man from Redcliff, Alta., is charged with two counts of break and enter, two counts theft over $5,000, two counts of theft under $5,000, three counts of mischief over $5,000, knowingly use a forged document, and three counts of possession of stolen property under $5,000.
He appeared in Kindersley Provincial Court on Nov. 23.
