Lethbridge’s Alberta Law Enforcement Response Team has arrested a Calgary man for his alleged role in a long-running series of organized vehicle tire thefts.

Police say at least eight dealerships in Alberta have been victimized with offences dating back to March 2016.

Four break-ins occurred in Lethbridge as well as one each in Taber, Calgary, Leduc and Wetaskiwin.

31 year old Patrick Rouillard was arrested at the end of July and charged with seven counts of breaking and entering and one count of breaking and entering with intent to commit theft.

The missing tires and rims are worth about $250,000 though ALERT says none of the stolen property has been recovered.
