Ponoka RCMP nab alleged thieves after vehicle gets stuck

Three Red Deer residents were charged in a rural break and enter investigation

Three Red Deer people face a court appearance after being caught in the alleged act of a break and enter at a rural home.

Ponoka RCMP attended the scene on Range Road 261 and Secondary Highway 611 on June 7 to find two suspect vehicles in a farmer’s field.

Police say there was a black sedan and a white SUV that had been filled with numerous items from the outbuildings. “The suspects had cut the lock on the gate,” say police.

“The vehicles then attempted to drive towards the township road to the south. The vehicles subsequently got stuck in the field.”

Mounties located and arrested three suspects.

The three Red Deer people are to appear in court June 12. They are identified as Carmen Brown, 38; John Goodheart, 54 and Adam Webb, 37.

All three face similar charges including breaking and entering, possessing break in instruments, mischief over $5,000, possession of a weapon for dangerous purpose (believed to be a firearm), possession of methamphetamine and possession of marijuana.
