grabbing the buttocks of a person, even if covered by clothes. Detective Mike Tabler with the Southwst Division CIS says the three incidents they are investigating occurred on January 12, 18 and the latest on the 20.

been actively investigating since the information was first given to them. Investigators are determining what potential links exist, if any between all events. Tabler says, “We are concerned that these incidents aren’t isolated ones. We are hoping that there are people who witnessed events and will come forward. They need to know any little piece of the story may be helpful in solving these events.” We need information from the public to assist us in catching this suspect or suspects. What is also critical is the information we obtain from complainants. Due to the number of bus routes that exist, it is absolutely critical that the victims in these cases note the bus number, time of travel, direction of travel and any other route information. Background: First incident – January 12 at 3:00 p.m. on a bus traveling Northbound on 111 Street between 43 and 48 Avenue. The complainant was a 15-year-old female. Second Incident - January 18 at 3:15 p.m. on a bus travelling Northbound on 111 Street between 43 and 48 Avenue. The complainant was a 15-year-old female. Third Incident - January 20 at 6:00 p.m. on a connecting bus on Southside route #17. The

complainant was a 24-year-old woman. Police have obtained this image of a suspect in one of the incidents from one of the complainants on her cell phone camera. Anyone with information which may assist Police are asked to call the complaint line at 780-423-4567 or Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.

Update: Thanks to all media outlets for their coverage concerning the sexual touching incidents. An arrest has been made in connection with these incidents. However, the person is NOT the one pictured in the image that was obtained from the cellphone camera shots. Police are still looking for that individual. However, the arrest is in relation to the latest incident which occurred January 20th at 6:00 p.m. At approximately 6:30 p.m. Friday night (January 22nd) Southwest Division officers arrested 52-yearold Rajinder Prashad Kaul at the Southgate bus terminal. He is being charged in relation to the third incident which involved a 24-year-old woman. Kaul has been charged with count of sexual assault.

senseless acts of vandalism with no reports of theft. Considerable damage was caused to the three businesses and the vehicles that were targeted . Damage to the vehicles include: broken taillights, smashed windows and windshields and in one instance, a fire extinguisher was discharged inside one of the vandalized vehicles. Investigators have obtained some current information that a group of youths were either directly involved in or witnessed these incidents.

strongly encourage anyone who becomes aware of such activities, regardless of nature, to report any incident that they feel is out of the ordinary. Such calls are not a waste of time or resources for RCMP officers. As in the earlier mentioned case where charges arose from a tip, RCMP investigators strongly believe that it takes citizen’s cooperation along with police resources to keep our community safe from these reckless acts of vandalism that end up affecting everyone through rising insurance rates.

Everyone who is familiar with their neighbourhood knows when someone or something is out of the ordinary, or when someone is acting suspicious. RCMP

approached the vehicle and spoke to the male driver and one male passenger. The member noted a strong odour of raw marihuana coming from the vehicle. After further investigation, it is believed both males were in Possession of a Controlled Substance. Both males were arrested without incident and taken into police custody. Subsequent to the arrest of the males, a search of the Pontiac Sunfire was completed. Leduc RCMP located several drug paraphernalia as well as approximately 1,913 grams (approx 4.25 pounds) of what is believed to be Cannabis Marihuana. The packaging in which the marihuana was located is consistent with that seen in drug trafficking and Leduc RCMP believe the drugs were prepared to be distributed to individuals throughout the Region. In total this investigation has the potential of removing approximately 14,000 joints or Marihuana cigarettes from negatively impacting the health and lives residents of the Leduc Region and many other locations throughout the Province of Alberta. Jeffrey Shane ZUTZ, a 22 yrs old and Taylor Allen GETSCHELL, 22 yrs old, both from Edmonton, AB are facing the following charges:

1. Possession of a Controlled Substance for the Purpose of Trafficking 2. Fail to Comply with Conditions of Recognizance (x2) ZUTZ is further charged with: 3.

Possession of Proceeds of Property Obtained by Crime Under $5000.00 Both ZUTZ and GETSCHELL were brought before a Justice to speak to their release and both were remanded in custody. ZUTZ and GETSCHELL were scheduled to appear in Leduc Provincial Court on December 31st, 2009 at 9:30 a.m. via Closed Circuit Television.

Detective Rob Paton with Robbery Section says, “Having this kind of a net cast can’t help but assist in locating this fugitive so that he can face these charges in Canada.” Paton says there is still a $25,000 reward outstanding that the Edmonton Police Commission has offered up in relation to this case. It is hoped it will lead to the arrest of 25-year-old Christopher David Meer. The Edmonton Police Service along with RCMP, U.S. Marshals, and Border Services have been involved in this investigation since 2007. It has involved multiple suspects and crosses several jurisdictions.

BACKGROUND: The investigation dates back to March 2007 when officers began looking into a possible connection between three arsons in the Edmonton and Pigeon Lake areas. Two fires in South Edmonton (November 2007, and December 2007) and a third in Pigeon Lake (March 2007) were all included in the investigation. Officers soon learned that they were dealing with a situation that extended far beyond

three isolated arsons. Over the course of the investigation it was learned that five individuals, all from Alberta, allegedly used intimidation, fear and violence to affect several of their business and personal relationships in the province. Investigators can reveal two people were charged and have since pled guilty and were sentenced to a federal penitentiary. Two others are awaiting trial. EPS Police are still looking for 25-year-old Christopher David Meer and warrants have been issued. Meer was profiled on the Fox television show America’s Most Wanted. It is suspected that Meer may have altered his appearance since this picture was taken. Christopher David Meer 25-years-old, White male, 135lbs, 5’9” tall, Brown eyes, Brown hair with blonde highlights The arson extortion case remains under investigation, and officers are asking anyone who may have had dealings with the accused, or know the whereabouts of the suspect still at large, to contact them at 423-4567.

Money stolen from woman in parking lot Police seek to identify male Edmonton Police Service investigators are asking for the public’s assistance in identifying a man who may have information about an incident where a significant amount money was stolen from a woman in the parking lot of West Edmonton Mall last summer. During the morning of Wednesday, July 29, 2009, a woman in her 50s was transporting cash between a bank and her place of employment at West Edmonton Mall. She left the bank on 170 Street and 100 Avenue with cash and returned to West Edmonton Mall where she obtained more cash from a financial institution. Around 11:30 a.m., she returned to her vehicle and discovered she had a flat tire. A male approached her and allegedly insisted on helping. The offer was allegedly refused and after the male left, the woman discovered that her purse

containing several thousands of dollars was missing from inside her car and that her tire had been slashed. Investigating officers are considering the possibility that she was followed as she made her way to the various locations that day. The above images were taken from surveillance footage at the bank she visited earlier that morning. The male in the picture is not believed to be the one who offered her assistance with her car, but officers would like to identify and speak to the male about what he may or may not have seen at the bank that day. Anyone with information about the unidentified male is asked to contact the Edmonton Police Service nonemergency line at 780-423-4567.

North West Edmonton Hit With Thefts From Autos West Division detectives are hoping the public can help them identify a person in connection with a number of thefts from autos in several west-end communities. An image from a surveillance camera in a parkade is being released to help identify the following male subject who police believe may be involved with these events: The communities of Hudson, Pembina, Cumberland and Wellington - which are part of EPS West Division - have seen the highest increase in incidents. During the last 30 days, there were 36 occurrences of thefts from autos in the four neighbourhoods. Vehicles parked on the street and within locked parkades are being targeted. Windows are being smashed and door locks punched.

Loose change, visible merchandise and registration/insurance slips are being targeted. Most of the incidents are occurring at night time, between midnight and 6 a.m. “The police continue to be frustrated with the public for not removing articles of value from their vehicles,” says Staff Sgt. Dale Fenrich, of West Division CIS Unit. “We encourage the public to be more vigilant by ensuring only legitimate persons are let into enclosed parkades.” Anyone who observes a suspicious person prowling around parked cars is encouraged to call police at 780-423-4567.

Operation HANDS OFF unveiled in Edmonton As those involved in property crime offences continue to ply their trade, the Edmonton Police Service along with Belgravia Crime Watch, and residents of Belgravia are coming together to use technology to help protect valuable assets through the Operation Hands Off property identification program. In an effort to help reduce thefts whether they may be wire, metal, car parts or anything of value, businesses and consumers alike can avail themselves of technology in the Canadian market place. Applied by a brush or spray applicator, MicroDotDNA can be applied to just about any surface only to be seen with a magnifying device.

an individual or company. Being sprayed or brushed on a surface, dozens to thousands of these dots can be used to mark and identify all manner of products, making it much like a name tag with numbers. North American utility companies have seen significant reduction in the theft of tools and metal since the inception of this program three years ago and local companies such as EPCOR and PCL have also had very positive results. Armed with this type of technology, law enforcement agencies will now be able to not only track, but provide absolute identification of a piece of property making it easier to not only identify victims but also to show to the courts who the rightful owner actually is.

On November 20th, 2009, Canada Border Service Agency (CBSA) at Toronto International Airport examined a package being shipped from Panama to a Fort MacMurray address, believed to have contained approximately 12 kilograms of cocaine. On November 25th, 2009 RCMP Edmonton Drug Section in collaboration with Canada Border Services Agency, Fort McMurray RCMP, and Edmonton Integrated Proceeds of Crime initiated an investigation and acting on the strength of a judicially authorized search warrant seized evidence supporting grounds to charge Sinday Paola SAIBIS-RODRIGUEZ, age 20 of Fort MacMurray with two offences under the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act: - Importation of cocaine, and - Possession of cocaine for the purpose of trafficking.

BIG Constructions

SAIBIS-RODRIGUEZ was remanded in custody to appear in Fort McMurray Provincial Court on December 8th, 2009. This seizure of 12 kilograms of cocaine, the largest volume of this illicit drug seized in relation to a Fort McMurray investigation, illustrates the importance of the RCMP working in partnership with CBSA in addressing the production, importation, distribution, sales, and use of illegal drugs. This amount of cocaine could have resulted in distribution or sales of approximately 240,000 casual use doses of this illicit and harmful drug. Illegal drug activities impact every aspect of our communities: business, commerce and trade; family life. Personal safety and development, along with health care and professional services are negatively impacted.

Officer struck by fleeing vehicle

A 37-year-old man has been charged with several offences after the vehicle he was allegedly driving struck a police officer. Shortly after 3 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 2, Downtown Division officers attempted to pull over a Pontiac Grand Am containing a male and female occupant. Despite emergency lights being activated, the suspect vehicle fled, striking the police vehicle in the process. The car was followed to 250 Avenue and 34 Street where it came to a stop. As officers approached the vehicle on foot it accelerated toward one of the officers, striking the officer and sending him over the hood and onto the ground. Shots were fired at the suspect vehicle which continued to drive away. A criminal flight from police ensued as the Grand Am headed north out of the city. Air-1 took over

Spiritwood, Sask. on July 7, 2006. The RCMP were called to a domestic dispute in Spiritwood when the suspect drove away. The suspect fled followed by two officers in one vehicle and Michelle in a second vehicle. After the first vehicle rammed the truck, the two officers were shot. When Michelle arrived at the scene, her vehicle was struck by bullets. She returned fire and managed to get out of the vehicle. She made her way to the passenger side of the first vehicle where she found one seriously injured officer; she located the other seriously injured officer nearby. She radioed for assistance and, because of the remote location, drove to a road where ambulances and other police officers could find her. She then directed them to the location. Unfortunately the two officers succumbed to their injuries in the days following the incident.

They used the kayak to provide buoyancy and approached the unresponsive boy and man who was repeatedly going under the water. They placed the boy on the kayak and helped the man hang on to it while they approached the shore. Another man and woman performed CPR until help arrived. Unfortunately the boy passed away two days later, but the man survived. He received a Bronze Medal for Bravery.

His jacket was waist length and two-tone blue, with four pockets on the front. The muskrat-style hat was dark brown. His blue jeans had holes on the knees and he may have been wearing dark boots. The suspect smelled of cigarettes and was possibly carrying a black or dark green fabric grocery bag. Anyone with information about the suspect is asked to call the EPS complaint line at 780-423-4567 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477. Background: EPS West Division officers are looking for information about a male who approached three young girls yesterday afternoon.

BIG Constructions

Around 2 p.m., on Monday, Jan. 11, 2010, an unknown male suspect walked into a school yard at 90 Avenue and 182 Street, where he approached three five-year-old girls during a recess break. The male allegedly offered to take the three girls to West Edmonton Mall and buy them candy. When a nearby teacher from the school noticed the male suspect, she called the students in, at which time the suspect quickly walked away. He was seen walking in the direction of 178 Street and 90 Avenue. The suspect is described as a Caucasian male in his mid to late 20s, approximately 5’8” and of medium build. He was wearing a blue zipped-up coat, blue jeans and a dark-coloured muskrat-style hat with the ear flaps down. “Parents are encouraged to remind their children not to speak with strangers and to seek out an adult if they are approached by a stranger,” says Sgt. Alex Hasham of West Division. “In this case, the teacher’s quick actions possibly prevented the situation from escalating any further.”

Suspicious death under investigation Homicide detectives along with Southwest Division officers are investigating a suspicious death in Edmonton’s west end.

West End death ruled homicide

Around 8:45 a.m., Thursday, Nov. 12, police were contacted by staff of the Beth Israel Synagogue on Wolf Willow Road after they discovered the body of what appears to be an adult male on the grounds surrounding the building.

Officers continue to investigate the circumstances surrounding the death of a male near Wolf Willow Road in Edmonton’s west end. At this point the EPS is able to confirm that the victim suffered apparent gun shot injuries and the death is now being ruled a homicide.

“The death is being treated as suspicious at this time,” says Homicide Section Staff Sergeant Lorne Pubantz. “It is too early in the investigation to determine the circumstances surrounding the death.”

The autopsy on 21-year-old Abdulaziz Osman Isse is scheduled for this afternoon. Isse is originally from eastern Canada and was not known to the Edmonton Police Service. He is not considered to be homeless.

Officers will remain at the scene throughout the day. Further information may be released following the autopsy.

Gang and drug section officers have been notified but a gang or drug connection has not been confirmed. Any connection to previous homicides in Edmonton has not been established at this time. At this point there appears to be no connection to the synagogue near where the body was found.

If anyone saw suspicious activity in the area over the past few days, they are asked to contact police on

Edmonton Student

Receives First BRAG Citation

On November 6, 2009 Mayor Stephen Mandel, EPS Inspector Darren Eastcott and Constable Ryan Kachur handed out the first citation to a junior high school student under a new positive ticketing program called B.R.A.G (Because of a Random Act of Goodwill).

Twelve-year-old Londonderry Junior High School Student, Sydney Nguyen was ticketed for always offering her assistance to others at her school, encouraging her peers and sharing a contagious enthusiasm for life. The ‘B.R.A.G.’ Citation program rewards kind and responsible behaviour, and creates opportunities for meaningful and positive interaction between youth and police. “This program is one more way for our police officers to connect with the youth they meet every day and create opportunities to reinforce positive personal and social behaviours,” said Inspector Darren Eastcott. “Thanking our youth for their good deeds and demonstrating we value the difference they make in our communities only takes a minute, but the results may have an impact throughout their lifetime.” Each B.R.A.G. Citation includes a free admission pass to any

BIG Constructions

City of Edmonton leisure, sports and fitness facility. Funding for the B.R.A.G program is provided by the Edmonton Police Foundation. “We’re proud to highlight the good deeds of youth in Edmonton with programs like B.R.A.G. By rewarding good deeds with these citations, we are focusing on the positive rather than the punitive,” said Mayor Stephen Mandel. “Acknowledging that positive actions lead to positive outcomes will encourage a ripple affect that will see Edmonton become an even better city. Congratulations to EPS for this innovative program.” The simplest acts of kindness and goodwill can be recognized through a B.R.A.G. Citation, including but not limited to: Wearing a helmet while biking, obeying rules of the road • Standing up for a friend • Reporting a stolen bike • Volunteering in the community • Helping someone in trouble • Assisting a senior citizen • Doing the right thing!

Medical Examiner who is responsible for classifying a death as a homicide. RCMP investigators utilize major case management principles, a proven investigational technique used to ensure that no aspects of evidence or potential witnesses are overlooked, when investigating suspicious deaths. In 2009, the RCMP identified 16 of the 39 homicides resulted from domestic violence. This included a wide range of family relationships well beyond the context of intimate partners. Of the 39 homicides in 2009, six deaths involved an intimate partner relationship. Circumstances lead investigators to believe all six were a result of a man killing his spouse or intimate partner. In 2008, RCMP also investigated six intimate partner homicides where it is believed that three men killed their partners and three women also killed their partners. Additionally, 12 of the 2009 homicides involved persons who would be described as known to or an acquaintance of the deceased. The RCMP’s Serious Crimes Branch is responsible for providing either a lead investigative role or support role in homicide investigations occurring in RCMP policed jurisdictions throughout the province. Investigators also work closely with our various policing partners when circumstances afford the opportunity to provide

assistance, or to share skills and resources. In 2009, the branch was comprised of investigators situated throughout the province in various Major Crimes Units, provincial and municipal General Investigation Sections and Project KARE. In 2009, as Alberta’s Provincial Police Service and in some communities the Municipal Police Service, RCMP “K” Division served a largely rural population of about 1,621,457 people or 44.6% of the Alberta population.

Police identify male in connection with Belmead incident Police have identified and questioned a male suspect who was spotted talking with three young girls in the Belmead school yard. A CARRT member patrolling the school area on Monday, Jan. 18 noticed a male who fit a very detailed description released to the public on Jan. 13, 2010. The male was seen walking on a path in the area of 178 Street and 90 Avenue around 2 p.m. The 65-year-old man was detained for questioning but the evidence obtained didn’t meet the requirement for criminal charges. However, the male will be banned from all school properties. “Our officers were able to identify this man thanks to the very good descriptions and the astute work by a CARRT member,” says Sgt. Alex Hasham. “Although we weren’t able to lay charges, this individual is now on our radar.”
