A third person has been arrested and charged following an investigation into the theft of a truck trailer and snowmobile.
The Mail reported in the March 8 edition Drumheller General Duty members, Drumheller General Investigation Section (GIS), and Southern Alberta District Crime Reduction Intelligence members initiated an investigation to locate and recover the property.
During the investigation, a suspect vehicle was located in Drumheller on March 1 and was subject to a traffic stop where two suspects were arrested and taken into custody; the vehicle contained an imitation handgun (airsoft gun), and both suspects were found in possession of methamphetamine.
The driver was also found to be a suspended driver.
Further investigation and information resulted in a search warrant being executed on a property on the evening of March 1 in Michichi.
As a result of the search, the 20’ stolen Interstate Car Hauler trailer was recovered. Further to this, additional information led to the recovery of the stolen 2000 dark blue Chevrolet pickup truck on the morning of March 2 in a rural area near Morrin.
A short time later the snowmobile was discovered abandoned near Morrin.
Tim Closs, 48, of Michichi was charged with possession of property obtained by crime, possession of methamphetamine; and operating a motor vehicle while being prohibited.
Judith Brown, 41, also of Michichi was charged with possession of property obtained by crime and possession of methamphetamine.
Police say they have made a third arrest in this investigation.
In the late evening of Wednesday, March 8, RCMP members of Drumheller General Investigation Section, along with General Duty members, executed a search warrant at a residence in Cedar Crescent in Drumheller.
Jeffrey Morse, 41, of Drumheller, was arrested and charged with three counts of possession of property obtained by crime and driving a motor vehicle while unauthorized.
Morse was released from custody and is scheduled to appear in Drumheller Provincial Court on Friday, May 26 to answer to the charges.

Wheatland County designates Lyalta, Lakes of Muirfield into hamlet

The community Lakes of Muirfield was officially recognized as part of the hamlet of Lyalta following a motion at the regular Tuesday, March 7 Wheatland County council meeting.
This was necessary to allow the county to explore wastewater service options through the Alberta Municipal Water, Wastewater Partnership (AMWWP).
“Alberta Transportation administers this program (AMWWP), and they’ve requested that a more formal adoption of the hamlet boundary be provided,” explained Planning and Development Services activating manager Stefan Kunz during the meeting.
Although Lyalta was recognized and referenced as a hamlet within multiple Wheatland County documents, such as the Municipal Development Plan and Land Use Bylaw, the Lakes of Muirfield was never formally recognized as being included within the hamlet boundaries. By designating the two communities as a single hamlet, this will allow the county to further explore funding through AMWWP or implement a special tax bylaw if necessary to provide water and wastewater services to the community.
