Cochrane RCMP arrest 2 trespassers and lay numerous charges

RCMP Alberta - On July 24 at approximately 11:00 am the Cochrane RCMP responded to a report of a suspicious male and female trespassing on property along the Grand Valley Road. The property owner interrupted a male and female rummaging through his vehicle in an attempt to steal it. The property owner called the RCMP immediately. The suspects ultimately got lost on the property and were unable to find a way out. The Cochrane RCMP along with the assistance of the RCMP Police Dog Services located the individuals a short time later. A short pursuit occurred, which resulted in one police vehicle being damaged and one police officer sustaining minor injuries. 

 The male and female were arrested and identified as Sarah Jane Doumont (32) of Red Deer and Lloyd George Hicks (36) of Calgary. Both Hicks and Doumont have been charged with 26 offenses between the two of them including, but not limited to, Mischief and Being in Possession of Property obtained by Crime over $5000. Hicks and Doumont have been remanded and are next scheduled to appear in Okotoks court on July 27, 2018.

The Cochrane RCMP would like to thank the property representative above for his prompt phone call to the police. “He did not engage the suspects when he encountered them, but rather he called 911 immediately and then became the best witness he could be paying particular attention to where the individuals were last seen” said Cst. Kary Moore with the Cochrane RCMP, “these details were instrumental in getting the police in the right area to arrest the above individuals.”

Rural residents much like urban residents provide the RCMP with local intelligence. Members of the rural communities know when there are strange vehicles in the area, suspicious behaviours being observed or knowledge of attempted crimes. When the RCMP receives this information it assists with the deployment of resources. The public is encouraged to report crimes that have been committed, no matter how small.

Anyone with information regarding this incident are asked to contact the Cochrane RCMP detachment at 403-851-8000. If you have information about this, or any other crime(s), and you want to remain anonymous, you can contact Crime Stoppers by phone at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS), by internet at www.tipsubmit.com, or by SMS (check your local Crime Stoppers [www.crimestoppers.ab.ca] for instructions on how to do it.) You do not have to reveal your identity to Crime Stoppers, and if you provide information to Crime Stoppers that leads to an arrest(s), the recovery of stolen property, and/or a seizure of illicit drugs, you may be eligible for a cash reward.
