The Medicine Hat Police Service Major Crime Section has charged two people in connection with a break in and theft from a jewelry store earlier this week.
On February 10, 2020 at about 3:24 am, a suspect broke into Gold Pro Jewelers located at #108 - 3030 13 Ave SE by smashing a window. Once inside, the suspect stole several rings and earrings from within before fleeing the area. The value of the stolen items is approximately $39,000.
Arrests were made on February 14, 2020 in relation to this offence and some of the stolen jewelry has been recovered by police.
A 37-year-old Medicine Hat man is facing one charge of possession of stolen property under $5000 and three charges of breaching his court imposed release conditions. He also had outstanding warrants for his arrest that are unrelated to this investigation. He has currently in police custody awaiting his appearance before a Justice of the Peace to determine potential release.
A 23-year-old Medicine Hat woman is facing one charge of possession of stolen property under $5000 and had a warrant for her arrest that was unrelated to this investigation. She has been released from custody and is scheduled to appear in court on March 25, 2020.
The Major Crime Section is continuing with the investigation and may have additional charges in the future. Additional information will be released at that time.
