Grande Prairie…Two men and one woman face several charges following a short-term investigation by Grande Prairie’s Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit (CFSEU-Grande Prairie), which turned up a large cache of stolen property.

In the early morning hours of August 1, CFSEU-Grande Prairie, with assistance from the Grande Prairie RCMP Drug Section, Target Team and detachment personnel, executed a Criminal Code search warrant in the Royal Oakes area of Grande Prairie.

Investigators located two all terrain vehicles, two dirt bikes, a defibrillator, an assortment of oil industry equipment, and several fleet gas cards, all believed to be stolen. The majority of the recovered property has been linked to recent thefts and break and enters in Grande Prairie. The value of the property is estimated at $75,000.

Two men and one woman were taken into custody and have been jointly charged with three counts of possession of stolen property over $5,000 and one count of possession of stolen credit cards.


The persons charged are:

  • Timothy John Ferguson, age 41;
  • Joshua Rodney Davidson, age 31; and
  • Ashley Dawn Ressler, age 28.

All of the accused are scheduled to appear in Grande Prairie Provincial Court on August 8.

Made up of RCMP members, CFSEU-Grande Prairie is an ALERT team established and funded by the Government of Alberta to bring together the province’s most sophisticated law enforcement resources to tackle serious and organized crime. Over 400 municipal police, RCMP and sheriffs work for ALERT.
