Three youths, two males from Calgary and one female from Airdrie, were arrested after police caught them in a stolen vehicle following a residential break and enter in Airdrie.
The resulting investigation by the Airdrie RCMP and Calgary Police Service Serious Habitual Offender Program (SHOP) linked the three to a series of break ins in the Airdrie area between July 8 and July 12, as well as a number of break and enters in Calgary as well. The six Airdrie break-ins occurred on these dates between the hours of 8 a.m., and 4 p.m., throughout the city of Airdrie. The suspects would gain entry through unlocked doors and windows and once inside they stole electronics, cash and jewelry. In one home, one of the suspects was confronted by an 18 year old female occupant of the home. The suspect fled the home and the 18 year old called police. The young woman was not harmed during the incident.
On July 27, The Calgary Police Service executed a search warrant at the home of one of the arrested youths in Calgary. Once inside the home, police discovered stolen property estimated to be valued at over $50,000. Police also recovered several vehicles.
There are 26 charges of property and breach of conditions pending against each the Airdrie Teen and one of the Calgary youths. 16 charges are pending against the other Calgary teen.
No court date has yet been set, however, all three suspects remain in custody in Calgary on other matters.
The Airdrie RCMP is attempting to return all the property stolen by these individuals to its rightful owners. Police are asking that anyone who has been a victim of theft to contact police with a list of any missing property.
