LETHBRIDGE, AB – Four people have been arrested as Lethbridge Police try to address bicycle thefts in high-crime areas.

Over three days this month, officers focused on specific places where thefts have been escalating from unattended bikes on the street, to more expensive bikes that were taken during home break-ins.

41 year old Cory Crowshoe, 24 year old Jimmy Badman, 26 year old Branden Eagle Plume and 40 year old Jessica Eagle Speakerare charged with theft and mischief.

All four have been released on bail to appear in Lethbridge Provincial Court at a later date.

LPS say it understands that this kind of crime impacts areas all over the city so the long-term investigation will be expanded as it continues.

I started my radio career in 2015, shortly after graduating from Lethbridge College. I have a very strong passion for local news.

Proudly born in 1994, I grew up most of my life in Sylvan Lake, AB and I’ve lived in the Lethbridge since 2012. I’m a below average golfer on a good day, I take as many hiking trips to Waterton as possible in the summer and I love my two cats, Outlaw and Jynx, and my dog, Maverick, more than most people I know.

I look forward to providing accurate, timely news coverage in southern Alberta for plenty of years to come!
