Cochrane RCMP have arrested and charged a Calgary man and are expected to charge a second suspect in connection to an October home Break and Enter in which a family’s laptop containing photographic memories of their deceased son was stolen.

On October 18, 2012, two men gained access into a home in a rural area of Rocky View County.  While inside, the thieves took passports, credit cards, electronics, a guitar and the laptop with the uploaded pictures.

Video surveillance of the Break and Enter as well as footage of suspects attempting to use the stolen credit cards assisted RCMP in identifying the suspects.

RCMP and members of the Calgary Police Service executed a search warrant at an apartment in the 200 block of Heritage Drive S.E.  where stolen property from the Rocky View home as well as other homes was located.

30-year-old Christopher Cole Thomsen faces numerous charges including Break and Enter.

The second male suspect has been identified and RCMP expect to make an imminent arrest.

RCMP can not confirm whether the family’s laptop has been recovered.
