Bait car used to arrest six people

Six people are facing charges after breaking into a decoy vehicle set up by police. Grande Prairie RCMP are working with the General Investigative Section and the “K”Division Auto Theft Unit to bring the operation to the community. They recently completed a six week operation.

Officers have been placing a “bait vehicle” in strategic locations in hopes to combat property theft. The device is monitored and anyone caught in the stolen vehicle is charged.

In connection with the operation, 26 year old Jake Snow of Grande Prairie will appear in court on March 6th, 2017 for a charge of theft of a motor vehicle. 37 year old Amanda Kanyo of Grande Prairie is facing a charge of possession of stolen property over $5000. Kanyo will appear in court on March 1st.

22 year old Crysta Desjarlais of Hythe has already appeared in court for her charges of theft of a motor vehicle and failure to comply with recognizance.

There is a warrant issued for 22 year old Nathan Landry of Grande Prairie. He has not been located but he has been charged with theft of a motor vehicle and mischief under $5000.

A 27 year old Grande Prairie man was facing 10 charges which included obstruction of a police officer and driving while unauthorized. Tyler Lannigan has appeared in court for these charges.

A 17 year old has also been charged with mischief and theft of a motor vehicle. They can’t be named under the Youth Criminal Justice Act.

Corporal Shawn Graham says RCMP are trying to keep this type of behaviour out of the community. The vehicle type and make has not been disclosed so it can be used again for the operation.
