Two arrested after found in stolen car; allegedly going through mailboxes

Editor’s note: While the area in question is not in The Pipestone Flyer’s circulation area, the issue of rural crime and RCMP advice affects many of our readers. County readers should take note.

On September 26, 2017 at 3:08 p.m., Leduc RCMP responded to a complaint of a suspicious, older model Honda Civic in the area of Range Road 254 and Township 500, Leduc County.

The vehicle was believed to have been checking out private mailboxes in the area. A Leduc County peace officer was on patrol in the area and conducted a traffic stop with the suspect vehicle.

Leduc RCMP attended and determined that the suspect vehicle had recently been stolen out of Edmonton and subsequently arrested the male driver for Possession of Stolen Property. A female passenger was also found to be on outstanding warrants and taken into custody.

The Leduc RCMP appreciates the public’s assistance in continuing to report suspicious activity in their area.
