The Wetaskiwin RCMP would like to inform the Millet area residents of an offence that is alleged to have place on September 25 at the Millet School park.

At approximately 8:30 p.m. that evening a local resident was at the park with her young child when she saw an elderly man exposing himself at a nearby picnic table. This incident was reported to the police on September 29, and police made an arrest on October 1. A man in his late 60’s, who is a resident of Millet, has been charged with committing an indecent act, and will be in Wetaskiwin court later in October.

Parents should speak to their children about being safe when out without a parent or supervisor. Youth should be directed to tell an adult as soon as possible if they see someone exposing themselves in public.

Police are requesting anyone who may have experienced a similar situation to call the local RCMP at 780-312-7267. Police will not be releasing the accused’s name at this time.

Youth arrested, 25 charges

The Wetaskiwin RCMP have arrested and charged a 17 year old male with 25 offences in relation to several thefts and other incidences in the Millet area.

The investigation began on October 4, when the accused was alleged to have been caught stealing a motor vehicle by the vehicle’s owner.  The accused is alleged to have hit the vehicle’s owner with the vehicle to ensure his escape. Thankfully the victim did not sustain any serious injuries. The accused allegedly later ditched the vehicle.

On October 7, the Wetaskiwin RCMP received a call of another theft of a motor vehicle.  A quick response to this call allegedly led police to the same accused in the event of October 4. Later that morning 10 other calls were received from the Millet area including theft from vehicles and trespassing at night. Police allegedly tied these events to the accused thanks to evidence from the community.

A suspect has 25 charges before the courts. They include: two counts of theft of motor vehicle,  one count assault with a weapon, three counts of theft from a motor vehicle, three counts of trespass at night, one count dangerous driving (criminal code),  one count mischief, one count flight from police, one count theft, one count resist arrest, one count possession of marihuana, one count possession of ammunition when prohibited, six counts of breech of Probation, two counts of driving an uninsured motor vehicle on a highway, and one count of failing to remain at the scene of a collision. The suspect in question is not from the community.

The Wetaskiwin RCMP would like to thank the community for its assistance in solving these crimes. Police are also reminding citizens to take all of their valuables out of their vehicles at night, and lock their car doors.
