On December 21st, 2010, at approximately 4:21 hrs., Leduc RCMP received a report of a commercial alarm at an apartment complex located on Keystone Crescent.  Leduc RCMP attended the location and were met by a man waving his arms to police.

The man alerted police to a vehicle that was parked but running on the side of the road near the apartment complex.  After further investigation, Leduc RCMP believed that the two males inside the vehicle were involved in a break and enter to the main office of the apartment complex. They were arrested and taken into police custody. Hours after this, an occupant of that apartment building reported unknown men broke into his apartment. Once the suspects gained entry into the residence, they tied up the occupant and threats were made to him at gun point.  Several items were stolen from the occupant.  The same men arrested in the break and enter were also involved in the robbery of the occupant.

A third male was arrested later the same day.

Bradley Paul BEGIER, 31 yrs old from Leduc, AB, Marshall Allen COMEAU, 27 yrs old from Leduc, AB and Brent Michael TETREAULT, 26 yrs old from St. Albert, AB are facing the following charges:

  1. Break & Enter to Business
  2. Mischief Under $5,000
  3. Possession of Property Obtained by Crime Under $5,000
  4. Possession of a Prohibited Weapon
  5. Possession of a Weapon Dangerous to the Public (Bearspray)
  6. Disguise with Intent
  7. Forcible Confinement
  8. Break & Enter and Commit Robbery
  9. Use Firearm in the Commission of Offence
  10. Utter Threats to Cause Death
  11. Assault with a Weapon
  12. Careless Use of a Firearm

REIGER and COMEAU further stand charged with:

  1. Possession of Property Obtained by Crime Under $5,000

COMEAU further stand charged with:

  1. Possession Contrary to Prohibition Order
  2. Possession of a Weapon Dangerous to the Public

TETREAULT further stands charged with:

  1. Possession Contrary to Prohibition Order (x2)

All three males were brought before a Justice and have been remanded into custody.  They will appear in Leduc Provincial Court on January 13th, 2011, at 9:30 a.m. via Closed Circuit Television (CCTV).

There were no serious injuries to the victim of the home invasion.  Leduc RCMP continue to investigate this occurrence.  Police believe that a fourth male may have been involved and  additional charges could be pending.  Additional information will be released if and when it becomes available.
