On Saturday (July 29), the Strathcona County RCMP responded to a break and enter near Range Road 215 and Township Road 544 in Fort Saskatchewan.
 
Two suspects kicked in the back door of the residence and once inside they stole an iPad and several firearms.
 
Police were informed that the stolen iPad was activated on August 2 and determined it was located at a residence in southeast Edmonton. On the same day, police saw a male and female leave in a 2017 Dodge Ram (which ended up being stolen out of Red Deer on July 31).
 
The pair were arrested shortly after at a pawn shop located on Stony Plain Road in Edmonton. During the arrest, the male was searched and police located a .40 calibre loaded handgun. In the stolen Dodge Ram police found a shotgun, knives, ammunition, stolen identification and numerous disguises.
 
Police obtained a search warrant for the southeast Edmonton residence and located an iPad, bullet proof vest, laptops and a stolen motor bike.
 
The stolen property recovered belonged to victims from Strathcona County, Spruce Grove, Red Deer and Saskatchewan.
 
Michael Labar, 40, of Red Deer and Savannah Korth, 20, of Edmonton have both been charged with multiple counts.
 
Both are scheduled to appear in Sherwood Park Provincial Court on Wednesday (August 16), at 9:30 a.m.
