On the afternoon of Monday, June 20 Sylvan Lake RCMP responded to a disturbance on Westview Drive.

The initial call came in from neighbours, who stated they had heard what sounded like a gunshot from somewhere in or around the home.

The area surrounding the home was shut down to the public, with Sylvan Lake RCMP and supporting members securing the area swiftly. They also asked the public to refrain from coming near the area or posting the RCMP’s location on social media until the issue was resolved.

The RCMP’s ‘K’ Division arrived shortly after to assist local members with the investigation, with a tactical operation heading into the area of Westview Drive early in the evening. This matter ended in the arrest of three individuals and no injuries.

RCMP stated in a press release late Monday evening that an investigation would be carried on throughout the evening and an RCMP presence was seen at the home throughout the day on Tuesday.

Sylvan Lake RCMP concluded their investigation into the disturbance on Wednesday and have since laid charges.

Bradley Douglas Stephenson, 30, of Sylvan Lake has been charged with possession of property obtained by crime over $5000, three counts of possession of property obtained by crime under $5000, possession of an instrument for use in forging credit cards and two counts of disobeying of a court order.

Timothy John Knowles, 33, of Sylvan Lake has been charged with possession of property obtained by crime over $5000, three counts of possession of property obtained by crime under $5000, possession of an instrument for use in forging credit cards, four counts of disobeying a court order, two counts of failing to comply with an undertaking, identity fraud and nine additional charges from Red Deer RCMP for an outstanding warrant.

Leith Alexandra Curtis, 33 of Sylvan Lake has been charged with possession of property obtained by crime over $5000, three counts of possession of property obtained by crime under $5000, possessing an instrument for use in forging credit cards and four counts of cailing to comply with a probation order.

Stephenson, Knowles and Curtis have been held in custody and will make their first court appearances on June 23, 2016 in Red Deer Provincial Court.
