Vulcan RCMP arrested two people on a rural property after an observant neighbour called 911 to report suspicious activity.
At about 6:19 p.m. last Friday, Vulcan RCMP responded to a call reporting people on a property along Highway 529, which was believed to be vacant. The homeowner had not given anyone permission to be on the property, and RCMP found two suspects with a cube van inside a garage.
Both were arrested without incident.
Robert Enrique Sanchez Anazco, 53, and 52-year-old Ligaya Alinsugay Yerbury are charged with break and enter and commit theft. The accused were released following a judicial interim release hearing and are scheduled to attend court in Lethbridge on Dec. 9.
“This is a great example of neighbours watching out for neighbours, and allowing the RCMP to handle suspicious situations,” Sgt. Troy Dobson said in a news release. “In this case, the situation was handled with no threat to any public safety.”
