A Vermilion woman is facing charges after RCMP investigators say she tried to sell stolen jewellery from Viking. Police are saying a jewellery store in Viking was broken into over the August long weekend and around $1000 in jewellery was taken.
A joint investigation between Vermilion and Viking RCMP tracked the stolen property to Vermilion. Mounties say tips from the public of jewellery being sold online help aid their search. On September 19th police from Vermilion executed a search warrant on a home and found.
A 33-year-old woman from Vermilion has been charged with possession of property obtained by a crime. She has since been released from custody and will appear in Vermilion court on October 15th. Constable Guillaume Wilson of the Eastern Alberta Rural Crime Reduction Unit says the public helping the police is what made the arrest possible.
“Tips from the public and collaboration between multiple detachments assisted us in a successful resolution of this investigation.”
Viking is located about an hour southwest of Vermilion.
