Woman charged with 59 offences in connection with locker thefts

The Calgary Police Service has charged a woman in connection with 17 different cases of thefts from gym lockers.

Between November 2016 and January 2017, it is believed a woman entered various private gyms across the city using stolen pass cards. Once inside, a specialized tool was used to open locked lockers and steal vehicle keys, credit cards and the victims’ gym membership card.

It is also believed that the same woman then used the stolen vehicle keys to steal the vehicles, used the stolen credit cards to commit financial frauds, and used the stolen gym cards to later enter the gyms again or enter other locations owned by the same companies.

In many cases, the lockers were secured with a rotary dial combination lock.

Jessi Dawn BYRON, 22, of Calgary, is charged with 28 counts of possession of stolen property, 14 counts of theft under $5,000, six counts of theft of a motor vehicle, three counts of personation, two counts of fraud, and six traffic offences.

Several stolen vehicles were also recovered during the investigation.
