Two men facing charges for several break-and-enters in Alberta are on the islands, possibly in the Masset area, says RCMP Sgt. Jim Vardy.
Sgt. Vardy said the two men, in their early 20s, were definitely seen in Queen Charlotte earlier this month. They are wanted on Alberta-wide warrants, one for breaching probation and the other for breaking and entering.
He said the RCMP in Red Deer alerted the police here to let them know that the suspects were on their way to the islands.
“Apparently they are well-known for breaking into cabins and taking large electronics,” Sgt. Vardy said. The crimes took place in Sylvan Lake, a small community near Red Deer, he said.
The men have not committed any crimes here as far as Sgt. Vardy knows but he warns residents to be on the lookout, as always, for anything suspicious.
