Update: Police identify suspects who mailed genitalia sculpture to Alberta man

Man has been sent offensive materials every December for last three years

  • Jan. 12, 2018 4:30 a.m.

Red Deer RCMP have identified the two people whose photographs were shared on Friday regarding an investigation of offensive material mailed to a Red Deer man for the past three years.

No charges have been laid at this time; RCMP continue to investigate the details of the file and will issue an update if more information becomes available.

“I would say a crime like this is fairly uncommon,” said Const. Derek Turner with the Red Deer RCMP on Friday.

RCMP believe the suspects may have mailed similar material to other targets this year as well.

“We believe more than one person was targeted because surveillance photos show more than one package of a similar shape,” said Turner.

The victim, who reported the crime Dec. 11, told police he did not recognize either suspect and isn’t aware why he has been targeted for the past three years.

The action of repeatedly mailing offensive material to someone is considered criminal harassment.

If you have information about this investigation, you’re asked to contact the Red Deer RCMP at 403-343-5575.

To remain anonymous you can call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or report it online at www.tipsubmit.com. If your information leads to an arrest, you could be eligible for a cash reward up to $2,000.
