  • One person charged in connection to stolen car

    One man has been charged in relation to a stolen vehicle that RCMP recovered in the Hawkmere area last month.

    Twenty-six-year-old Calgarian Mikhail Loskutov was arrested Feb. 1 and has been charged with Possession of Property Obtained by Crime over $5,000, three counts of Possession of Property Obtained by Crime Under $5,000, and two counts of Failure to Comply with a Recognizance.

    The charges stem from a stolen vehicle investigation started Jan. 27 when RCMP recovered a Honda Civic that had been stolen out of Langdon in the Community of Hawkmere.

    Subsequent investigation found that the vehicle had a license plate that had been stolen from a car in Calgary.

    Loskutov was released on $500 cash bail with conditions.

    He is scheduled to appear in Strathmore Provincial Court on Feb. 19.

    Chestermere RCMP Detachment Commander Staff Sgt Mark Wielgosz said in a release that police will, “continue to monitor Loskutov’s release conditions as part of a local crime reduction program which targets active property criminals within the City.”
