On November 1, after observing suspicious activity, the Integrated Crime Reduction Unit (ICRU) effected the safe arrest of a male driving a stolen vehicle.

In the early evening, the ICRU were patrolling in Calmar when they spotted a suspicious male. Investigation revealed that the vehicle he was operating was reported stolen out of Leduc on October 31, 2017. It was established that the male was breaching court order conditions as well. ICRU members waited until they had an opportunity to make an arrest safely. At approximately 10 p.m., with no disruption to anyone in the public the male suspect was taken into custody with the assistance of the Leduc RCMP and Police Dog Services.

33-year-old Dustin James Funk has been charged with the following criminal charges:

– Possession of property obtained by crime over $5,000

– Possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose

– Resist arrest

– Possession of a controlled substance (x2) – Controlled Drugs and Substances Act

– Fail to comply with conditions of a Recognizance (x2)

Funk is currently in police custody awaiting a judicial interim release.

The stolen vehicle was recovered by the RCMP and returned to the rightful owner.

The ICRU is a recently formed RCMP team whose mandate is to identify high risk and dangerous prolific offenders in Alberta and aggressively put a stop to their activities. Property crimes are a priority for the RCMP. This ICRU is committed to increased inter-agency communication, shared criminal intelligence and a strategic focus on prolific property crimes offenders, in keeping with the K Division emphasis on crime reduction strategies.
