In a Friday media release, RCMP said it arrested Steven Kirk Gable, 44, of Grande Prairie, and Cory John Zeller, 34, of Saddle Hills County just north of Grande Prairie, and charged them with possession of property obtained by crime over $5,000, as well as possession for the purpose of trafficking methamphetamine.

At about 9 p.m. on Nov. 17, RCMP said, members of the Mounties’ crime reduction unit noticed a truck parked in the Riverstone South area of Grande Prairie, where it was associated with a nearby residence, and discovered that the truck had been reported stolen from Manville, about 170 kilometres east of Edmonton.

Officers executed a search warrant at the associated residence before searching the stolen truck and seizing 23.14 grams of a substance police believe to be methamphetamine, as well as items associated with drug trafficking.

Gable faces an additional charge of fraudulent concealment while Zeller also faces charges of failing to comply with a release order as well as failing to comply with an undertaking.

Zeller was remanded into police custody, RCMP added, while Gable was released from custody on a release order after a judicial hearing.

Both men are slated to appear in Grande Prairie provincial court on Dec. 22.
