A crime spree has caught up with two local men.
The Redwater RCMP along with the RCMP Edmonton Auto Theft Section have arrested two suspects after a lengthy investigation into stolen vehicles.
Last month, police executed a search warrant at rural property in Sturgeon County. They found a truck and an ATV that were previously reported stolen from Westlock and Evansburg.
James Moffat, 37, from Gibbons was arrested after allegedly stealing the vehicles, taking them apart and then selling the parts.
Moffat was charged with break and enter and theft and possession of property obtained by crime under $5000. He's also facing three counts of trafficking of property obtained by crime, possession of property obtained by crime over $5000, motor vehicle theft and fraud.
Ronald Rickett, a 51-year-old from Sturgeon County was also charged with possession of property obtained by crime under $5000.
Both men are scheduled to appear in Fort Saskatchewan Provincial Court on Apr.12.
