Officers from the Coronation RCMP detachment have recovered stolen items and laid charges following the execution of a search warrant at the end of August.
Around 11:30 a.m. on Aug. 25, officers executed a search warrant on “Schlosser Small Engines” in relation to an ongoing investigation into stolen property in the region.
Over 90 items were recovered and seized by officers, including motorbikes, ATVs, golf carts, and other equipment.
While officers were executing the search warrant, more than 20 area residents attended the business to recover items they had allegedly been unable to retrieve from business owner Zane Preston Schlosser.
Showing proof of ownership, the items were returned to their rightful owners.
Following the investigation, the Coronation RCMP has charged Schlosser, 43, of Coronation, Alta., with:

Schlosser was released on conditions with his next court date scheduled for Oct. 13 at 11 a.m. at the Alberta Court of Justice in Coronation.
