New suspect arrested after police apologize to identity theft victim

Edmonton Police make a new arrest on Tuesday

A new suspect was arrested by police in connection to an identity theft case and stolen vehicle.

On Tuesday, Edmonton Police arrested a 30-year-old man of no determinable address on outstanding warrants stemming from March 16 vehicle crash-related incidents in Ponoka. He is in custody and is set to appear in Ponoka Provincial Court on April 21 at 9:30 am.

Police previously issued an apology after arresting the wrong suspect, who had been the victim of an identity theft.

The initial arrests and charges were linked to a stolen vehicle and crash near Ponoka.

Now additional charges of impersonation and possessing stolen identity documents have now been added to the roster against this suspect.

Previously, three men were arrested and charged with stolen property and other offences after the crash. One of the three was found to be misidentifying himself. The other two, a 46-year-old from Innisfail and a 51-year-old from Red Deer, still face numerous charges and remain in custody.
