Man charged in relation to Millet liquor store armed robbery

Nelson Saulteaux in police custody

In a joint effort from the Leduc General Investigation Section and St. Albert RCMP detachment members, Nelson Saulteaux has been located by the newly formed Integrated Crime Reduction Unit (ICRU) and arrested, without incident, in St. Albert.

Saulteaux was previously charged in relation to an armed robbery that occurred in Calmar on Oct. 15, 2017, and an arrest warrant was issued. RCMP felt that Saulteaux may be armed and dangerous, and public assistance was requested in locating him.

Saulteaux is also facing charges in connection to an armed robbery on Oct. 14 at the By the Way Liquor Store in Millet, and with a theft from a liquor store in Stony Plain on Oct. 12.

Saulteaux was wanted on a Canada Wide Warrant for being Unlawfully at Large; he remains in police custody.

“Intelligence sharing between various detachments is crucial in solving these multi-jurisdictional crimes” says Corporal Peter MacMillan of the ICRU, in a Oct. 25 press release.

“We are seeing the positive results already in relation to the implementation of this Integrated Crime Reduction Unit. It’s our hope that solving these robberies and effecting this arrest may help to prevent future crimes,” he added.

These matters are now before the courts, further investigational information will not be provided by the RCMP.
