Redcliff RCMP were dealing with several property and persons related complaints of stolen vehicles, assaults, a robbery and break and enters this week. 


On Wednesday, April 18, Redcliff members joined with Saskatchewan RCMP members and RCMP Police Dog Services regarding two stolen vehicles, other stolen goods and a robbery in the Hilda/Schuler areas of Cypress County and into Saskatchewan.  The investigation has lead to the arrest of two individuals and the seizure of several stolen items including two saddles, a trailer, two stolen pick-up trucks and a stolen ATV.  Some of the items were taken from Medicine Hat and others in the Hilda/Schuler area.  This investigation took up the majority of the day for those involved.
Tyler Gregory Otterson, 34, of Medicine Hat has been charged with 1 count of Robbery, 2 counts of Assault with a Weapon, 1 count of Possession of Property Obtained by Crime Over $5000, 2 counts of Failing to Comply with a Probation Order, 1 count of Failing to Comply with a Recognizance and 1 count of Flight from a Police Officer.  An adult female will also be charged with 1 count of Possession of Stolen Property Over $5000. 

Otterson has been remanded into custody in Medicine Hat Provincial Court until Tuesday, April 24, 2018 and the female, aged 29, has been released to appear in Medicine Court on May 31, 2018.  The female cannot be identified until the charge against her has been sworn.
Redcliff RCMP continue to remind the public to secure their vehicles and properties by locking everything up and removing keys from vehicles.  By doing so, people engaged in criminal activity will not have quick access to a vehicle if they run out of gas in the vehicle they are currently driving.
The RCMP would also like to thank the members of the public who assisted with this investigation.
Anyone with further information or questions is asked to call the Redcliff RCMP at (403)548-2288 or CrimeStoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.
