RCMP Central Alberta District Crime Reduction Unit nets 17 charges against two men

Two men are facing a smorgasbord of criminal charges after being arrested near Nisku allegedly in possession of a stolen car.

According to RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Laurel Scott, “The Central Alberta District Crime Reduction Unit (CRU) effected an arrest on June 29 which lead to the recovery of a 2018 Subaru recently stolen from an Edmonton dealership. Two males were arrested and facing charges.

“The Central Alberta District CRU members were patrolling and focusing on areas in Nisku that have been the target of past criminal activity when they observed a suspicious vehicle. Investigation led to the arrest of two males. A subsequent search of the vehicle resulted in the recovery of other stolen property including identification and fraudulently created identification along with a small amount of methamphetamine.

“19-year-old Trystin Jade Blundell from Bonnyville is facing four criminal charges as follows: possession of property obtained by crime over $5,000, possession of property obtained by crime under $5,000, fraudulent concealment and possession of a substance (methamphetamine) under the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act. He has been released from custody and is scheduled to appear in court in Leduc on July 26, 2018.

“47-year-old Mark Nelson Corkum-McFetridge, of Redwater, was on probation at the time of his arrest, and was determined to be breaching conditions of his probation. In total, 13 new charges have been laid against Corkum-McFetridge. He is facing nine Criminal Code charges including possession of property obtained by crime over $5,000 and four counts of identity theft and Breach of Recognizance. He is also facing three charges under the Traffic Safety Act and one charge of Possession of a controlled substance (methamphetamine) under the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act.

“Corkum-McFetridge remains in custody. He is scheduled to attend court on July 5 in Leduc.

“The Central Alberta District CRU continues to focus its efforts on targeted policing, and will continue to report good outcomes such as arrests like these” says Cpl. William Hiscock, Supervisor of the CRU. “On an ongoing basis we are conducting special operations and gathering criminal intelligence to be shared amongst surrounding detachments, as well as the Edmonton Police Service.”
