Bonnyville RCMP charge two after finding stolen police vehicle from Prince George

Two people have been charged after stealing an unmarked police vehicle from Prince George that was driving in the Bonnyville-area on the weekend.

Bonnyville RCMP responded just after midnight on Sunday morning along with Elk Point, St. Paul, and Cold Lake detachments to find the vehicle.

Prince George RCMP confirmed that an unmarked police vehicle had been stolen and that it contained various police uniforms and equipment.

However, there were no police firearms in the vehicle.

At approximately, 5:30am police found the suspects and stolen vehicle north of Bonnyville.

The police materials were found later.

Kohl Anthony Timms, 33-year-old from McBride, BC has been charged with possession of a stolen vehicle, operation while prohibited, and seven counts of failing to comply with a probation order.

A Judicial Interim Release hearing was held and Timms was held in custody. He was scheduled to appear in Bonnyville Provincial Court on June 2.

A 33-year-old female accomplice also faces a charge of possession of a stolen vehicle.

Her name is not yet known because the information is not yet sworn.

She is set to appear in Bonnyville Provincial Court on September 15.
