There is a reason to report suspicious activity as seen clearly by an incident ending in Cochrane.
Corporal Curtis Peters says thanks to someone reporting suspicious activity they were able to crack a case.
"In this case it was just an individual that saw something that didn't quite look right and called us. That one phone call led to us being able to make these arrests and clear up investigations throughout southern Alberta."
Cpl. Peters says back on January 20, a release was sent out stating they were looking for Cole Mclean who had outstanding warrants in three different detachments throughout Southern Alberta. After a phone call of a suspicious vehicle on a leased oilfield site north of Cochrane on January 31, Cochrane RCMP were able to make an arrest.
Cole Mclean and 28 year old Danielle Mckenna of Okotoks were found in a stolen vehicle with numerous stolen items.
Facing a multitude of charges, the duo made their court appearances on February 2 and 3.
Cpl. Peters says there are cases where suspects hit up multiple jurisdictions and having detachments communicate criminal activity with each other is of utmost importance.
"We want to have all our detachments work together and share that information about people moving around in our area."
