RCMP Search Warrant Locates Stolen Identity Documents

On March 13, 2021, St. Albert RCMP Crime Reduction Unit (CRU) executed a Search Warrant at an apartment complex in the City of St. Albert. The search of the residence located hundreds of pieces of stolen identity documents, forged identification, forged cheques and stolen mail. There was evidence the individuals were making and distributing forged identification to be used in other frauds.

As a result of the investigation, both Twyla STEINHAUER (33 years old) and Corey PEERS (32 years old) of Edmonton, have been remanded into police custody and are set to appear in court on March 22, 2021 in St. Albert on the following charges:

St. Albert CRU has seen a significant increase in identity theft complaints recently. St. Albert CRU has completed three separate investigations that have resulted in the seizure of hundreds of forged and stolen identification documents. Many of the stolen identity documents that the suspects have used to make false identification based on, come from theft from motor vehicles which is called “car hopping” or “car shopping”.

To help combat this growing crime trend, the St. Albert RCMP urge citizens to follow the #9PM Routine and keep their motor vehicles locked.
