In early December 2021, the St. Albert RCMP Crime Reduction Unit (CRU) began investigating a series of break-ins to mailboxes at an apartment complex in St. Albert, Alberta. St. Albert RCMP CRU team requested assistance from the property management company to identify damaged mailboxes and possible victims, who were unsure at the time if they were victims of mail theft. The investigation determined that more than three dozen mailboxes had been damaged, and one suspect was identified as breaking into the mailboxes over a two-week period.
The investigation lead to a search warrant being executed at a residence in St. Albert, on December 16, 2021. The search resulted in the recovery of multiple St. Albert residents’ mail and parcels, including credit cards, banking information, and personal documents. The search warrant also resulted in the seizure of methamphetamine, and other illicit drugs.
