As a result of a lengthy, and complex investigation RCMP members from the Wetaskwin RCMP, General Investigations Section and Maskwacis RCMP, two prolific property offenders have been arrested on numerous charges, and several outstanding warrants throughout central Alberta.

The police worked around the clock gathering information, from several jurisdictions, needed to hold these offenders accountable.

The offences consisted mainly of thefts from retail outlets. Jurisdictions affected by these two include Wetaskiwin, Millet, Camrose, Red Deer, Drayton Valley, Spruce Grove, Vegreville, St. Albert and Beaumont. Investigations suggest that over $10,000 worth of merchandise has been stolen by MIND and OMEASOO since April of this year.

On November 25th, 2015, 32 year old Candice MINDE, and 31 year old James OMEASOO, were arrested without incident. Each was wanted on numerous outstanding warrants from several central Alberta communities.

Upon arrest Candice MINDE was charged with 49 criminal offences dating between May 25, 2015 and November 25, 2015. They consist of one count of obtaining food fraudulently, 18 counts of theft, and 30 counts of breeching court orders. At the time of arrest MIND had warrants for 27 other, similar charges.

James OMEASOO was charged with eight counts of theft. At the time of arrest OMEASOO was wanted on 14 other, similar charges.

MIND and OMEASOO were in Provincial court November 26th, 2015 and have been remanded pending further court appearance in early December.
