Leduc man faces five serious charges linked to stolen Toyota Tundra

Central Alberta District ICRU arrest male in Leduc

Early this morning, the Integrated Crime Reduction Unit, acting on information received, located a stolen Toyota Tundra pickup truck in a neighbourhood in west Leduc. A short time later ICRU members effected the safe arrest of a 21-year-old male from Leduc.

The ICRU members established that the Toyota Tundra had been stolen days ago from a location in Edmonton. The lone male occupant of the truck was arrested after he stopped at a motel in Leduc. The ICRU members were able to safely arrest him with no disruption to, or jeopardy to, anyone in the general public.

A search of one suspect subsequent to his arrest led to the seizure of methamphetamine paraphernalia, break and enter tools, a stolen cheque, prohibited knife and an imitation pistol.

As a result of this investigation, Branden Dwayne Land is facing several criminal code charges, including:

– Possession of Property Obtained by Crime Over $5,000

– Possession of Property Obtained by Crime Under $5,000

– Possession of Break and Enter Tools

– Possession of a Concealed Weapon X 2

Land is still in custody and is awaiting a bail hearing.

The “K” Division Crime Reduction Strategy is a targeted, evidence based approach to policing. This model enables police to identify repeat offenders, conduct targeted enforcement initiatives and to address the root cause of a crime. This method of policing is used in several countries across the world and has had proven success.

“We believe that every arrest we make equates to one more crime that won’t be committed” says Corporal Peter MacMillan, in charge of the Central Alberta District ICRU. “We will continue to disrupt criminal activities and ensure the safety of our communities”.
