Two Lacombe residents charged after incident

Police continue to investigate related home invasion

On Sept. 11th at approximately 8:30 a.m. Lacombe Police were called to a residence in the area of 58th St. and 50th Ave. after gunshots were heard in the area. A second call was received that two individuals had entered a residence at 5049 58th St. and had been in an altercation with the occupants of the home. A firearm was discharged in the home during the altercation and then the offending subjects fled. The home owner received minor injuries during the struggle.

Upon police arrival at the location it was determined that two subjects wearing balaclavas had been seen fleeing the scene.

It is believed this was a targeted attack and the public is not at risk.

While dealing with the original victims and occupants of the residence, police observed a variety of drugs in the home. A search of the residence located quantities of marijuana, cocaine, MDMA (ecstacy), psilocybin (magic mushrooms) and cash.

A male and female from the residence have been charged with numerous offences under the Criminal Code and the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act.

Nick Alexander Meyers, 27, and Tamara Emella Beriault, 24, both from Lacombe, have been charged with four counts each of possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking, possession of property obtained by crime and unauthorized possession of a firearm.

Police are still investigating the original home invasion and attempting to confirm the identities of the two individuals responsible.

Anyone with information about this series of crimes is asked to contact the Lacombe Police Service at 403-782-3279. Those wishing to remain anonymous can call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or report it online at www.tipsubmit.com.
