Lacombe County couple arrested in Daysland after bank robbery

Early in the investigation, the Central Alberta District Crime Reduction Unit identified individuals it believed were involved in the crime. As a result, and with the assistance of the RCMP helicopter, two people were arrested and parts of the ATM, significant amounts of cash, vehicles and other stolen items were recovered.

“RCMP Crime Reduction Units across Alberta work to monitor the most active repeat offenders in our neighborhoods,” says Sgt. Kelly Kraal of the Central Albert Crime Reduction Unit. “Our knowledge of these active offenders allows us to respond quickly and interdict crime as it occurs.”
