A plethora of crimes across western Canada appears to have left a mark on multiple communities in southwestern Saskatchewan.
The unsolved crime spree from the early part of July travelled through Chaplin, Swift Current, Tyner, and Eston.
According to an RCMP crime map, the first law-breaking instance in the southwest was a fuel theft in Chaplin.
The two alleged suspects then evaded police in the Swift Current area.
Their joyride in the region continued when they stole a black 2013 Ford F-150 from a rural property in Tyner. The theft was reported to the Kyle RCMP on July 9 and the vehicle, with a Saskatchewan license plate 728 JSD, hasn't been recovered yet.
The last sign of the male and female in the southwest was on July 10 when an abandoned white SUV stolen from the Yorkton area was recovered in Eston.
It was the Morse RCMP that asked the Saskatchewan RCMP to look into the string of incidents to see if they were connected. Police so far believe 23 incidents across Saskatchewan, Alberta, and British Columbia can be tied to the male and female suspects.
The list of crimes includes;
- thefts of vehicles in Yorkton, Kipling, Tyner, and Bethune
- stolen vehicles recovered in Chamberlain, Yorkton, Tyner, and Kelowna, British Columbia
- fuel thefts in Viscount, Wynyard, and Chaplin
- flight from police officers in Whitewood, Foam Lake, Yorkton, Belle Plain, and Swift Current
- thefts from vehicles in Regina
- use of a stolen credit card in Hanna, Alberta
The male is described by the RCMP as having blonde hair, a slim build, and a tattoo on the left side of his neck. And the female also has blonde hair with dark roots and a slim build.
Anyone with information regarding any of these crimes is asked to contact their local police or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
