Innisfail RCMP work with multi partners to seize stolen property and charge six suspects

A report of an attempted home invasion on Feb. 18 led to the arrest of six property crime suspects and the recovery of a substantial amount of stolen property by Innisfail RCMP.

The Innisfail RCMP responded in the evening of Feb. 18 to the attempted home invasion near downtown Innisfail.  Two males were reported as trying to break into the home while in possession of weapons.

The two suspect males were identified by the RCMP. On Feb. 19 Innisfail RCMP with the assistance of the Central Alberta District Crime Reduction Unit and RCMP Air Services attended a property on the C+E Trail in Red Deer County, north of Penhold, to arrest the suspects.  One was arrested without incident and the second fled in a Ford F350, with two other occupants, recently stolen out of Saskatchewan. A pursuit ensued, and efforts were made to deploy tire deflation devices, but they were not successful.

The F350 travelled throughout the central Alberta area to a location near Pigeon Lake, where three occupants abandoned the F350 and were picked up by a second Ford dually pickup truck. The dually was under observation as it travelled back into Red Deer where all 5 occupants were eventually arrested at two different locations in the city with the assistance of the Red Deer City RCMP, Innisfail Integrated Traffic Unit and the RCMP Police Dog Services.

On Feb. 20, Innisfail RCMP with the assistance of RCMP Calgary Auto Theft and Blackfalds GIS executed a search warrant at the C+E Trail property. The RCMP seized items related to many property crime investigations throughout Central Alberta including: stolen firearms, ammunition, a stolen dirt bike, stolen tools, break-in tools and other weapons. The dually was examined by the Calgary Auto Theft Unit and found to be a cloned (different VIN) vehicle that was stolen 3 years ago from a ranch near Strathmore.

The following persons all from the Red Deer area have been charged as follows:

Gary Auvigne (45) is facing over 20 criminal code charges, including break and enter, use a firearm while committing an offence, utter threats, possession of a stolen firearm and breach of a release document (x6).

Thomas Larkin (41) is facing 17 charges including break and enter, possession of a stolen vehicle, possession of break in tools, flight from police and dangerous driving. He is also charged with breaching a release document (x7).

Katherine Young (29) and Thomas Foshay (36) are both charged with possession of a stolen vehicle and possession of break-in tools.

Adam Bogusky (36) is facing seven criminal charges including possession of break in tools, fraudulent concealment, possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose, dangerous operation of a vehicle and flight from police.

Kameryne Boyd (21) is charged with possession of break in tools, fraudulent concealment and possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose.

Auvigne and Larkin were held in custody pending Judicial Interim Release hearings scheduled for Feb. 26, 2021 in Red Deer Provincial Court. Young and Foshay  participated in Judicial Interim Release hearings and were released by a Justice of the Peace for future court dates. Bogusky and Boyd were released by police for first appearance court dates on April 6, 2021 in Red Deer Provincial Court.

RCMP say 29 year old Red Deer suspect shot by officer was carrying this weapon

News release from Alberta Serious Incident Response Team (ASIRT)

Investigation into RCMP officer-involved shooting causing injury continues

On Sept. 21, the Alberta Serious Incident Response Team (ASIRT) was directed to investigate a Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) officer’s discharge of his service weapon during an encounter with a 29-year-old man that day.

At about 6:08 p.m., Red Deer RCMP received a 911 call reporting a break and enter in progress at a residence in the Maxwell Avenue area by a 29-year-old man known to the homeowner. At approximately 6:10 p.m., Red Deer RCMP officers arrived on the scene and entered the residence.

Shortly thereafter, the officers confronted the man inside the residence. During the encounter, an officer discharged his service weapon, injuring the man who was able to retreat into another room. Not long after, the man surrendered and was taken into custody without further incident.

Officers on scene provided emergency first aid to the man until Emergency Medical Services (EMS) arrived and took over care before transporting the man to hospital. The man was assessed, treated and discharged from hospital back into police custody.

The civilian reporter has confirmed that he heard commands to drop a weapon prior to shots being fired. A bladed weapon was recovered at the scene. The injured man has confirmed that at the time of the officer-involved shooting, he was in possession of this weapon, which he referred to in the interview as either a “knife” or a “sword.” While this evidence provides some context for the event, there is considerably more work to be done. It remains to be established what, if anything, the man may have done with the weapon; what the officers, including the officer who discharged his firearm, observed; and what prompted the use of potentially lethal force.

ASIRT’s investigation will examine the circumstances surrounding the police officer’s discharge of his firearm. The RCMP retains responsibility for the investigation into the man’s conduct. No additional information will be released.

ASIRT’s mandate is to effectively, independently and objectively investigate incidents involving Alberta’s police that have resulted in serious injury or death to any person, as well as serious or sensitive allegations of police misconduct.
