S/Sgt Jeremie Landry, with the Cold Lake RCMP Detachment explains, “the officer recognized this individual to be Nathan Piche, so he ran him on our system and found that he was wanted and on several conditions. But, he still provided a false name and false date of birth.”
RCMP arrested 24 year old Nathan Piche, of Cold Lake. Piche was taken before a Justice of the Peace, where his bail was denied. He has been charged with obstructing a police officer and driving while disqualified.
