Vehicle stolen from Fort Saskatchewan found in Kehewin, pair charged

The RCMP in Bonnyville have charged two people with various offenses after they were discovered inside a stolen vehicle in Kehewin which was stolen from Fort Saskatchewan.

According to police, on February 18 at noon, the Bonnyville RCMP attended a residence in Kehewin for an unrelated matter when they noted a vehicle running on the property with people inside.

“RCMP walked up to the vehicle and noted two occupants inside the vehicle,” Staff Sgt. Sarah Parke said. “When asked what they were doing there the female occupant told the member they had just purchased the vehicle and provided her name.”

Further investigation determined the licence plate on the vehicle was stolen in Bonnyville and the vehicle itself had been stolen from Fort Saskatchewan.

Furthermore, the female had lied about her identity.

“The 33-year-old female from Saddle Lake was charged with two counts of Possession of Stolen Property Under $5000 and Obstruction,” Staff Sgt. Parke said.

She was released from custody by a Justice of the Peace to appear in Bonnyville Provincial Court on March 17.

The other occupant, a 35-year-old male from Edmonton who was found to be on Probation was charged with two counts of Possession of Stolen Property Under $5000, two counts of Failing to Comply with Probation, and one count of Failing to Comply with a Release Order.

He will appear in court on March 1.
