LETHBRIDGE:  Regional police have put a dent in a stolen auto ring and charged three-men and a woman, all from Lethbridge.  

The month long investigation determined seven-vehicles were stolen from Lethbridge, Calgary, Airdrie and Winnipeg with a combined value over $150,000.  Most of the vehicles had their Vehicle Identification Numbers (VIN) removed or tampered with.

During executed search warrants at three-locations in the city and one in the County of Lethbridge on Tuesday,  the Regional Police Organized Crime Unit and RCMP also found drugs, cash and guns. Along with the seven-vehicles, they seized $4,000 in cash, three shot guns, a handgun, 30-grams of cocaine, 220-grams of marijuana.

William Alexander Tycholas, 27, of Lethbridge, is charged with two counts each of possession of stolen property over $5,000, possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking and one count of possession of the proceeds of crime.

John James Hewlett, 48, is charged with three counts of possession of stolen property over $5,000 and one count each of theft over $5,000 and possession of stolen property over $5,000 for the purpose of trafficking.

Michael Roland Taylor, 46, is charged with five counts of possession of stolen property over $5,000 and one count of possession of stolen property over $5,000 for the purpose of trafficking.
