Second Coleman invasion suspect arrested

Tyler Thomas Trodden, wanted in connection with a Crowsnest Pass home invasion, has been arrested by Vulcan RCMP.

The 39-year-old Pincher Creek man was apprehended without incident Sunday, and a shelter-in-place advisory issued for the village of Champion has since been lifted.

Trodden was the subject of an arrest warrant for charges including aggravated assault, break and enter, robbery, and firearms and weapons offences.

Five armed men forced their way into a Coleman, Alta. residence Sept. 16 where two men and one woman were assaulted.

Police allege the suspects had firearms and other weapons in what they believe to be a targeted attack.

Trodden will remain in custody until a judicial interim release hearing determines if bail will be granted.

RCMP arrested Garett Adam Ouellette, 41, on Sept. 21 and remanded him in custody until his next court appearance on Sept. 28 in Pincher Creek Provincial Court.

Robert Russell Dwyer, 37, and Aaron John Thompson, 40, remain at large along with a third unidentified man.

Authorities believe Robert Dwyer is in the Pincher Creek area.

He is 6’ tall and 165 pounds. He has brown eyes, brown hair and a light complexion.

Aaron Thompson may also be in or near Pincher Creek.

He is 5’10” and weighs 294 pounds. He has brown hair, hazel eyes and a light complexion.

If you have information about the whereabouts of Dwyer or Thompson, or if you know the identity of the fifth suspect, please contact Crowsnest Pass RCMP at 403-562-2867 or your local police.
