A Rocky Mountain House man faces charges in relation to a crime spree in the Sylvan Lake and Blackfalds area.

On Sept. 11th at 7:15 a.m. Sylvan Lake RCMP received a report of a theft of a vehicle from the Hewlett park area. The complainant reported that her black Kia had been stolen.

Hours later, RCMP received a complaint from a residence west of Sylvan that a male was found in their basement. The suspect fled the residence.

Police located the Kia abandoned a short distance away. Police Dog Services tracked a suspect to a farm when it was determined the suspect had stolen another older pickup. A short time later, another call was received that the older pickup had been abandoned and a newer dark colour Ford truck had been taken in its place. Later in the afternoon, Blackfalds RCMP received a report of a black Ford F350 being left at the Burnt Lake Stables located on secondary Hwy. 596 and RR 10. A male had been seen going through a parked vehicle and took $50 that had been in that vehicle. The culprit was last seen heading down the driveway on foot.

At 2:16 p.m. Blackfalds RCMP received an alarm call to a rural residence. A neighbour advised he saw a male on a quad with a rifle strapped to his back leaving the residence.

At 4:29 p.m. Blackfalds RCMP received information that the suspect on the quad had been seen driving west on Township Rd. 374 from RR 283. Members spoke to the owner of one rural property and were advised that a male on a quad with a firearm had crossed his field to the southeast.

Blackfalds members located the suspect at another rural property sitting on the quad and the suspect was taken into custody.

Tyler Joseph Shaw, 29, of Rocky Mountain House faces 14 charges including three counts of break and enter, one count of possession of stolen property, four counts of theft, and five weapons-related charges.
