The law finally caught up with one Lamont County driver after he got stuck in a snowbank in a stolen vehicle.
According to the RCMP, “On November 23, at 6:00 p.m. in Fort Kent, the Alberta Sheriffs caught up with a suspect that had fled from them in a stolen vehicle during a traffic stop earlier in the evening.”
The driver of the stolen vehicle had gotten stuck while trying to get away and the Sheriffs called the RCMP for assistance.
A 30-year-old male from Lamont County was arrested and he was found to have several loaded firearms in his possession as well as the stolen vehicle.
Sgt. Sarah Parke is the Detachment Commander for the Bonnyville RCMP.
“He is charged with eight different firearms offences, three counts of Possession of Stolen Property Over $5000, two counts of Possession of Stolen Property Under $5000, Flight from Police, five counts of Disobeying a Court Order and two counts of destroying a VIN on a motor vehicle,” Sgt. Parke told Lakeland Connect.
The male was brought before a Justice of the Peace for a bail hearing and despite the multitude of charges including disobeying a court order, he was released to appear in Bonnyville Provincial Court on December 7.
