Medicine Hat duo facing charges after ALERT investigation

Two residents from Medicine Hat are facing charges after a joint investigation with ALERT and Medicine Hat Police Service on Saturday.

ALERT’s Medicine Hat-based Regional Property Crimes unit recovered a stolen motorhome, two trucks and a cargo trailer, totalling approximately $140,000, on Saturday, August 18, at Kin Coulee Park and a rural property.

“Working with our policing partners across southeast Alberta, our specialized team is able to share criminal intelligence and target the most prolific property crime offenders. In this case we were able to locate the stolen motorhome and have it back to its rightful owners in a timely manner,” said Staff Sergeant Ryan Thorburn, ALERT Medicine Hat.

ALERT was able to spot the motorhome at Kin Coulee Park after it being reported stolen earlier to Brooks RCMP. After further investigation, ALERT searched a rural property 50 kilometres northwest of Medicine Hat where two stolen trucks were seized.

Kathleen Rose, 25-years-old, and Kayla Thompson, also 25-years-old, both residents of Medicine Hat have both been charged with possession of stolen property.

The investigation is still ongoing according to ALERT and additional suspects are being pursued. ALERT is also working to return everything to its rightful owners.
