RCMP responded to a suspicious vehicle call in Sturgeon County, north of Edmonton early Thursday morning and wound up arresting and charging a 48-year-old Spruce Grove woman and a 46-year-old Edmonton man with a number of charges.

Morinville RCMP says they quickly located the suspect vehicle on Sturgeon Road and determined the vehicle had a number of stolen goods from the surrounding subdivisions, including brass street signs from the rural subdivisions. The vehicle also had a number of tools police believe would have aided the suspects with their crime as well as what is believed to be Methamphetamine and other drug paraphernalia.

Police say the area around the Sturgeon Valley near St Albert has been hit hard recently with various brass signage, lettering, and numbering getting stolen. This signage is believed to be then re-sold to scrap metal businesses.

The 48-year-old Spruce Grove woman has been charged with possession of stolen property exceeding $5000, possession of stolen property exceeding $5000 for the purpose of trafficking, and two counts of breach of recognizance. The 46-year-old Edmonton man was charged with possession of stolen property exceeding $5000, possession of stolen property exceeding $5000 for the purpose of trafficking, and possession of Methamphetamine under the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act.

Neither name of the accused was released by RCMP.
