Wanted Saddle Lake man arrested in St. Paul

A Saddle Lake man who was wanted on several warrants was arrested in St. Paul last week.

During the evening of November 28, a member of the Eastern Alberta District Rural Crime Reduction Unit (EADRCRU) observed a suspicious vehicle in St Paul.  The member, along with members of the St Paul RCMP, conducted a traffic stop with the vehicle in a parking lot off of 50 Avenue near 47 Street.

Subsequent investigation by the RCMP revealed that the driver of the vehicle, who was not forthcoming about his identity, was wanted on an outstanding warrant for failing to comply with the conditions of a recognizance.  He was arrested without incident.

Frank Jackson (20) of Saddle Lake was also charged with two counts of failing to comply with the conditions of a recognizance, as well as identity fraud fraud and obstructing a peace officer.

Jackson was additionally charged with driving an uninsured motor vehicle and driving without a licence.

He was released on $1,500 cash bail by a Justice following a bail hearing and is scheduled to appear in court in St Paul on December 13, 2018.
