TISDALE – A 32-year-old man from Codette accused of stealing a house had his first appearance in Melfort court Monday.
Matthew Malley was charged with theft under $5,000, uttering threats, and assault with a weapon. The charges against Malley haven’t been tested in court.
Malley was arrested after Tisdale RCMP got a call around noon on June 14 that a house, which was loaded on a trailer to be transported, was stolen from Crooked River between midnight and 12:30 p.m. that day.
The police investigation determined that an altercation occurred between a man and the owner of the house after the house went missing. Police didn’t recover the house and asked anyone if they see it to call Tisdale RCMP at 306-878-3810.
Malley is scheduled to appear in court again Aug. 15 to enter a plea.
