Police lay over 75 charges against two individuals

The Calgary Police Service has charged two individuals with multiple offences relating to stolen property, drugs and firearms that were recovered in the course of an unrelated investigation.

On Monday, Sept. 2, 2015, officers were monitoring a storage locker believed to be related to break and enter offences when two people arrived in a stolen vehicle and accessed the locker. The suspects were taken into custody and police searched both the locker and the vehicle.

A rifle and loaded handgun were seized from inside the vehicle, along with ammunition, knives, small amounts of fentanyl, small amounts of crystal meth, and a bag of vehicle and house keys that are believed to be stolen.

Police then searched the storage locker and inside found a duffle bag containing several pellet guns and other improvised weapons, multiple stolen identification documents, stolen credit cards and keys. It is believed that these items were stolen through residential break and enters and car prowlings, both within Calgary and around southern Alberta. Investigators determined that the firearms were stolen from outside of the city.

Police have charged Alan MCABEE, 35, of Calgary, with a total of 51 criminal charges, including two counts of possession of stolen property over $5,000, five counts of possession of stolen property under $5,000, 20 counts of breaching a court order, 18 counts of firearms offences, three counts of unlawfully possessing another person’s identity documents, one count of possession of a stolen credit card, and two counts of possession of a controlled substance.

Patricia KEENAN, 28, of Calgary, is charged with a total of 25 criminal charges, including one count of possession of stolen property over $5,000, two counts of possession of stolen property under $5,000, 15 counts of firearms offences, four counts of breaching a court order, two counts of possession of a controlled substance, and one count of obstructing a peace officer.

The investigation is still ongoing but police have been able to return the stolen property that was recovered to its owners.
