Two men and one woman are facing a bounty of charges after being apprehended by police in connection with an alleged crime spree.
According to a recent press release police in Edmonton became involved in the investigation of two break-and-enters and a theft of a motor vehicle the week of Nov. 16. This then led to an investigation which connected five stolen vehicles to a series of other incidents which occurred between Oct. 25 and Nov. 19 in Edmonton as well as two rural break-and-enters in Stony Plain where five firearms were stolen as well as an investigation by police in British Columbia in relation to a spree of incidents there. Through the process it was determined the suspects in the wide range of alleged activity had recently relocated from B.C. and shifted to the Stony Plain area of Alberta’s Tri-Region.
Arrests were made at the end of last month and now Nicholas Konrad Kirszenstein, Trevor Taylor and Tara Brown are charged with more than 80 offences between them. These include multiple property crimes, a personal robbery charge and assault of a peace officer. The charges have not yet been proven or tested in court and items recovered by authorities included nine stolen firearms, stolen tools, identity documents, more than $8,000 in cash, six stolen vehicles, a stolen trailer and a stolen ATV at an address in the town of Stony Plain.
