On July 4, Sylvan Lake RCMP members arrested two local males after identifying them as trying to sell stolen property on Kijiji.

On June 15, 2018 a break and enter to a cabin in the Buck Lake area was reported to the RCMP.  Several items were stolen, and subsequently listed on the Kijiji website.  With the assistance of the owner, RCMP members located and recovered the property and arrested the two males. During the arrest, several other stolen pieces of identification documents were in the possession of the accused.

35-year-old Mitchell Jeffrey Murray of Sylvan Lake has been charged with nine criminal code charges, one charge under the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act and four traffic related charges.  He is facing charges which include trafficking in stolen property (x3), possession of forged documents (x2), possession of stolen cheques, et al.

25-year-old Taylor Austin Kemp of Sylvan Lake has been charged with trafficking in stolen property (x3) and breach of probation.

Both Murray and Kemp have been released from custody and are scheduled to appear in Provincial court on July 19 in Red Deer, Alberta.

“Assistance from the home owner who remained diligent about seeking his stolen property was instrumental in the RCMP solving this investigation” says Staff Sergeant Andrew Shepherd of the Sylvan Lake RCMP Detachment.
