On January 28th, 2017 at 1:30 a.m.. the area of Breton was subject to numerous break and enter and thefts along Highway 20 and Highway 616 near Range Road 50.

A group of individuals who were occupants in a dark green 1999 Jeep Cherokee, which was stolen out of Spruce Groves on January 27th, 2017 at 7:10 a.m.., made stops at two different properties only a few miles south of Breton on Highway 20, where they stole diverse items and attempted to steal jerry cans of fuel.

The perpetrators were seen by one of the property owners when they broke into a garage in an attempt to steal fuel. After being caught in the garage, they fled north bound on Highway 20 before turning westbound onto Highway 616 and stopping at a property near Range Road 50.

The perpetrators were again chased from the property by the owner, who fired a shot at the vehicle’s tire. The perpetrators were attempting to steal fuel and while attempting to flee from the property almost ran over the property owner.

The vehicle was later located in the alley north of 53 Avenue in Breton.

Search of the vehicle revealed that the vehicle had initially left Spruce Groves after being stolen and had headed to Onoway’s Shell gas station located at 4921 49 Street.

It was also found that in the same day, at approximately 6:23 P.M., the vehicle had travelled to Calgary where it had stopped at the Canadian Tire located at 596 64 Avenue NE.
