The Leduc RCMP detachment has charged a “repeat offender” following a suspicious person complaint on June 18.
A little before 10 p.m., Leduc RCMP officers responded to an area near 62 Ave. and 42 St. in Leduc for the complaint.
Determining the complaint was the in-progress break and enter of a business and that the suspect was last seen in the area hiding underneath a vehicle, officers began making foot patrols.
The suspect was located and arrested as he attempted to flee the area.
Leduc RCMP officers have charged Garret John Faryna, 30, of Leduc, with:
-Break and enter;
-Mischief under $5,00;
-Fail to comply with a release order;
-And possession of break-in instruments.
Faryna was taken before a justice where he was remanded into custody until his next court date in Leduc Court of Justice on June 29, 2023.
“The successful arrest during a break and enter in progress is thanks to a member of the public immediately calling in the suspicious activity and the quick response from the officers working,” said Cst. Cheri-Lee Smith, in a June 26 media release. “This is a prime example of the public and police working together.”
