Rocky Mountain House RCMP have arrested the two remaining suspects alleged in the Caroline Supplies break-in from January 28.

On February 7 police executed a search warrant at a residence in O’Chiese First Nations and have arrested 41-year-old Trena Yellowface and 43-year-old Gordon Roswell. 

In the early morning hours of January 28, a break and enter into Caroline Supplies was reported to the Rocky Mountain House RCMP. The suspects were reported to have fled in an older brown F-150.  Assistance was requested from the RCMP in identifying suspects and locating the truck. 

The truck has since been located and seized by Rocky RCMP. 

42-year-old Joel Baptiste is also co-accused in this matter and will appear in Rocky Mountain House court Feb. 20. 

Trena Yellowface has been charged with break and enter, disguise with intent, theft over $5000, and breaking and entering to seal a firearm, unauthorized possession of a firearm, possession of a firearm obtained by crime, tampering with serial number and possession of property obtained by crime.

Yellowface has been remanded in custody and is scheduled to appear in Red Deer Provincial Court February 9.

Gordon Rowsell has been charged with possession of a firearm obtained by crime, tampering with serial number, possession of property obtained by crime, possession of firearm contrary to prohibition order. 

Roswell has been remanded in custody and is scheduled to appear in Red Deer Provincial Court February 9 as well. 

One stolen rifle and various ammunition were among other items seized during the execution of the search warrant. 

“It’s always a good thing to remove stolen firearms from the community”, says Sergeant Jay Penner, “We’re grateful to the public for bringing any suspicious activities to our attention, assisting us in working towards having safer communities.”

The RCMP continue to actively investigate and seek another suspect in this armed robbery.  A further update will be provided when RCMP have information to release.
