Spruce Grove, Alberta – Sometime between April 14 and April 15 of 2012, suspects broke into a locked barn located on a local rural farm. Four antique cars had been stored in the barn. Two of the restored vehicles, a 1925 Ford Model T and a 1956 Studebaker, were removed from the barn and destroyed.
Suspects appeared to get the Studebaker running and when it became stuck in the mud, they lit it on fire. The Model T was pushed outside. Suspects smashed its windows, caused extensive body damage and left burn marks on the vehicle.
Recently, there was a break in the case that enabled the Parkland RCMP to identify the suspects responsible for the vandalism of the antique cars.
Ryan Scott (26) of Stony Plain and a male that cannot be identified as he was a youth at the time of the offence are charged with:
• Mischief over $5000
• Arson – damage to property
Ryan Scott has submitted a not guilty plea. His trial is scheduled for Mar. 20, 2020 at Stony Plain Provincial Court.
The second male’s next appearance is scheduled for Nov. 15, 2019 at Stony Plain Provincial Court.
