Firearms seized from residence near Brocket

A 37-year-old man faces a long list of criminal charges after Piikani Nation RCMP seized seven rifles, along with ammunition and firearms parts, from a residence near Brocket.

Jessie Flett was arrested after a search of the residence, where RCMP on March 18 located a pickup truck allegedly involved in a March 12 flight from police in Fort Macleod.

Piikani Nation RCMP have charged Flett with seven counts of unlawful possession of a firearm, seven counts of unsafe storage of a firearm, eight counts of possession contrary to prohibition order and one count of possession of stolen property under $5,000.

Additional charges under the Traffic Safety Act have been laid in connection with the Fort Macleod incident.

Under the Petty Trespass Act, Flett is also accused of entering land without permission.

He remains in custody and is scheduled to appear Thursday in Pincher Creek court of justice.

Local jail guard charged with sexual assault, breach of trust

A former civilian jail guard at the Piikani Nation RCMP detachment in Brocket is facing criminal charges of sexual assault and breach of trust after an alleged in-custody assault last week.

Charles G. Provost, 32, of Brocket, has been removed from his position as a Corps of Commissionaire guard at the detachment, following an investigation by the Southern Alberta RCMP general investigations section.

Police say the assault is alleged to have been committed in the early morning hours of Oct. 13 against a woman lodged inside a cell.

Charges were laid following the investigation, which included a review of cell block video surveillance.

Supt. Rick Jane, acting district officer for Southern Alberta RCMP, said in a statement that the force “takes all sexual assault incidents very seriously.”

“Once our officers were notified that this had happened, action was taken very quickly and a thorough investigation was completed,” he said.

“No matter what the circumstances are, anyone in the care of the RCMP must be protected and we will not tolerate a breach of trust.” 

RCMP have also ordered an operational review to see if any changes to policies and procedures should be made in light of the case.

Provost has been released from custody with conditions and is scheduled to appear Nov. 23 in the Alberta court of justice in Pincher Creek.
