Grande Prairie, Alberta – A stolen vehicle has been recovered and an adult male is facing several charges after the Western Alberta District (WAD) Crime Reduction Team (CRU) made the arrest Monday afternoon.

On February 12, 2018 at approximately 3:00 p.m. CRU members on patrol located a vehicle in an alleyway in the area of 105 Street and 104 Avenue. Investigation determined the vehicle to be stolen. The driver and lone occupant was arrested at scene without incident.

Andrew James Forseth (36) of Grande Prairie has been charged with Possession of Property Obtained by Crime over $5000 and three counts of Breach of Recognizance. He has since been remanded into custody for a court appearance in Grande Prairie on February 14, 2018.

WAD CRU began operations last week and will focus on specific targets and projects in various policing areas in the Western Alberta District. The objective is to identify those criminals who have the biggest impact on our communities and work towards the disruption of their ongoing criminal activity.

The unit is committed to increased inter-agency communication, shared criminal intelligence and a strategic focus on repeat property crime offenders, in keeping with the K Division emphasis on crime reduction strategies.
