On April 14th, 2016 at approximately 2:00 AM, a Constable with the Bonnyville RCMP Detachment was conducting routine patrols in the town of Bonnyville when they observed a vehicle bearing a licence plate that did not match the vehicle.
A traffic stop was conducted with the vehicle and through investigation it was learned that the driver, a 45 year old male resident of Kehewin, AB, was wanted out of Cold Lake RCMP Detachment for charges of Uttering Threats along with being on conditions to only be in a motor vehicle if the registered owner was present. The male was arrested for his outstanding warrants.
Checks on the passengers, 1 male and 3 females, determined that the registered owner was not present and that one of the passengers, a 26 year old female resident of Edmonton, AB, had originally provided the police with the wrong name and was also wanted out of Cold Lake RCMP Detachment for Fraudulent use of a Credit Card and Possession of Stolen Property .
The male driver was released on scene on court compelling documents for both his outstanding warrants and a charge of Failing to Comply with conditions.
The female passenger was arrested for Obstructing a Peace Officer and for her outstanding warrants and was transported to the Bonnyville RCMP Detachment where she was put before a Justice of the Peace who released her on court compelling documents.
The Bonnyville RCMP would like to remind the public that if they have any information they believe is related to a crime to contact the Bonnyville RCMP at 780-343-7200/780-826-3358 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477
