On November 16, 2023, Leader RCMP charged an adult male in relation to their ongoing investigation into a break-and-enter and theft of an ATM in their detachment area in July 2023. A warrant was issued for his arrest and Leader RCMP worked to locate him.

Around the same time, Kindersley RCMP began an investigation into several break and enters reported in the Coleville area recently.

On November 19, 2023, investigation by Kindersley RCMP determined a vehicle reported as stolen from Unity was parked outside a business in Kindersley. An adult male was arrested nearby. He was determined to be the male wanted by Leader RCMP.

Kindersley RCMP then executed a search warrant in Kindersley and located and seized tools as well as a trailer that was determined to be stolen. Officers have returned some of the items to their rightful owners and are working to return further items.
