Killam Mounties have charged two with theft.

On March 6, Killam and Viking RCMP responded to a break and enter in progress at an oil field site in Flagstaff County. Two males were arrested following a search in an open field for a White Dodge truck. The arrest would not have been possible without the assistance of three Flagstaff County locals.

41 year old Gregory Bader of Red Deer, was charged with three counts of break and enter to commit, five counts of mischief over $5000, one count of theft over $5000, one count of theft under $5000, two attempted thefts, one count of possessing break-in instruments, one count of prowling at a dwelling house, five counts of breaching conditions of his recognizance, one count of breach of probation order and five counts for trespassing.

41 year old Fernando Barrett of Grande Prairie, was charged with one count of breaking and entering with intent to commit an indictable offence, one count of possessing break-in instruments for the purpose of committing an indictable offence, one count of trespassing and three counts of breaching conditions of his recognizance.

The white Dodge Ram had been the subject of many complaints this year for causing damages, stealing fuel and stealing copper wire at four different locations involving oil lease sites, businesses and residences. The estimated value of damages caused is between $100 000 - $200 000.

Killam RCMP say the arrest of these two individuals would not have been possible without all of the public's tips, calls of suspicious activity and assistance in apprehending them safely.
