Glendon, Alberta – “The people who are most active in rural property crime tend to develop and rely on a criminal network strategy as a means of hiding themselves and stolen property from police,” says Constable Robert Eberly, EADRCRU. “Our goal is to develop even stronger networks with rural communities to combat and disrupt property crimes and repeat offenders.”
On Friday Oct. 8, 2018, Bonnyville RCMP received a report of a break and enter and theft from a local business in Glendon.
Police observed video surveillance footage which showed two males and one female suspect breaking into the Glendon Korner Mart by smashing through the main glass door. The suspects proceeded to steal several items from the business prior to fleeing the scene in a vehicle. They were observed driving an orange and black Ford pickup truck which had also been reported as stolen from a residence in Glendon the same night.
On Oct. 9, 2018, Cold Lake and Bonnyville RCMP Detachments, the Cold Lake Police Dog Service (PDS) and the Eastern Alberta Rural Crime Reduction Unit (EADRCRU) attended a house in the Elizabeth Metis Settlement. Police were able to locate and recover the stolen Ford truck and arrest a female who was believed to be involved in the break and enter at the Korner Mart.
Amy Jean Cardinal (24) of the Elizabeth Metis Settlement was charged with the following offences:
- Breaking and Entering into a business
- Possession of property obtained by crime over $5000 (x2)
- Possession of property obtained by crime under $5000 (x3)
She was released after a judicial hearing with conditions and is scheduled to appear in Bonnyville Provincial Court on Nov. 6, 2018.
Police are asking for the public’s assistance in identifying the two additional male suspects who are still at large and included in the attached photos.
If anyone has information regarding these suspects, they are asked to contact the Bonnyville RCMP Detachment at 780-343-7200 or their local police. If you wish to remain anonymous, you can contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS), online at www.P3Tips.com or by using the “P3 Tips” app available through the Apple App or Google Play Store.”
