A break-and-enter in Pennant last week left two Kyle residents facing multiple charges.
Swift Current Rural RCMP received a call of a break-in around 9:55 a.m. on Wednesday and immediately responded to the residence on the 200 block of Standard Street.
According to a media release from the Saskatchewan RCMP, the initial investigation indicated that an armed male and female entered the residence, and then fled by vehicle. The lone occupant of the dwelling at the time of the robbery reported no injuries to police.
An Everbridge advisory was issued to the public around noon, with a description of the vehicle the suspects were in.
Further information gathered by police services determined the female suspect had been seen at a local trailer park; the Saskatchewan RCMP Trafficking Response Team (STRT), Swift Current Municipal RCMP and RCMP Traffic Services assisted in securing the area. Both suspects were located and arrested without incident.
After searching a nearby residence, police found and seized stolen property, a shotgun, a knife, and disguises – all involved in the original break-and-enter report.
The release stated that the suspect vehicle was also located and seized that day in Swift Current, parked on Northhill Road.
Kyle’s 37-year-old Ashley Decoste and 50-year-old Joeseph Denis are each facing multiple charges, including:
Break and enter using a firearm, contrary to Sec 348(1)(b) of the Criminal Code;
Intent to commit an indictable offence while masked, contrary to Sec. 351(2) of the Criminal Code;
Steal while armed with a firearm; use of a firearm to commit robbery, contrary to Sec. 343 and 344 of the Criminal Code; and
Carry a weapon to commit an offence, contrary to Sec. 88 of the Criminal Code.
Denis has been charged with four additional firearms-related Criminal Code offences in relation to this investigation.
Both individuals are scheduled to appear in court this morning via CCTV.
