On February 6th, 2019 the Claresholm RCMP arrested thirty one year old Daniel Derek Morgan of Claresholm on warrants for break and enter and theft. As a result of this arrest, an investigation led to a Search Warrant being obtained for a residence in Claresholm where they recovered stolen property linked to multiple offences that occurred in the Claresholm and Stavely area since December. RCMP also seized controlled substances including methamphetamine and fentanyl, several weapons, and Canadian and U.S. currency. MORGAN and twenty-five year old Kassandra June VILLNEFF of Okotoks were charged with multiple counts of possession of property obtained by crime, possession of controlled substances and possession of weapons for a dangerous purpose. MORGAN also faces multiple charges of Break and Enter and Breach of Probation.
The results of the investigation were made possible through the help of the community in reporting crime and the availability of video surveillance footage. Video surveillance is an effective tool to deter and solve criminal activity. The Claresholm RCMP would like to extend their thanks to the individuals who provided information necessary to solve these offences. If you have been victimized by property crime, please be sure to report it to the police.
