Maskwacis man charged with selling stolen property online

RCMP receive complaint about stolen property on Kijiji

Following a complaint received on September 19, 2017 Ponoka RCMP, with the assistance of support units, arrested two adults allegedly selling stolen property on Kijiji.

A tip led police to conduct an investigation, which resulted in the RCMP making an arrangement to meet sellers of stolen property on September 22, 2017. Following confirmation that the item they were presenting for sale was in fact earlier reported stolen, RCMP arrested a man and woman.

Subsequently, 42-year-old Cory Twins of Louis Bull First Nation has been charged with three charges under the Criminal Code: Trafficking in Property Obtained by Crime, Breach of Probation and Drive while Disqualifed.

A bail hearing was held and Twins is remanded in custody.

The Ponoka RCMP are pleased that this situation was reported to the police, allowing them to gather the necessary evidence to effect an arrest and recover the stolen property. If you are the subject of a theft, and you have reason to believe that your property is being posted for sale – contact your nearest police department.

The investigation remains ongoing, further information is not available at this time.
