Theft from vehicles on the rise
But Cranbrook RCMP has two charged
On June 5, Cranbrook RCMP received a call from a resident advising that his truck had been broken into overnight and that several items were stolen, including bank and credit cards.
Later that evening the resident called back to advise that he had received a call from his credit card company stating that someone was trying to use the credit card at the Casino of the Rockies.
With the assistance of staff from the casino, RCMP was able to identify two youths as being in possession of the credit cards. Both youths were arrested outside the casino in the resort area. One of the youths is currently the subject of an Intensive Support and Supervision Order for a separate offence and will remain in custody until seen before the courts.
The second youth, a 15-year-old from Kimberley, was also arrested and will remain in custody until he also appears before the courts.
“The Cranbrook RCMP would like to thank the Casino of the Rockies for all its assistance in this investigation. Without their support this incident might have remained unsolved,” said Cst Katie Forgeron.
