Red Deer RCMP have arrested a man who turned out to be wanted on 33 warrants.

At about 6:30 a.m. on Thursday, RCMP responded to a report of a suspicious vehicle at 50th Avenue and 28th Street.

The vehicle was a truck stolen Wednesday morning from the West Park neighbourhood.

The driver, arrested without incident, was wanted on warrants in Red Deer for a variety of Criminal Code and Controlled Drugs and Substances Act offences that stemmed from a number of incidents.

Warrants included charges of drug possession, possession for the purpose of trafficking, impaired driving, resisting arrest, possession of stolen property, theft, credit card theft, fraud, uttering forged documents, a number of failures to appear in court, and failing to comply with numerous court-imposed conditions.

Brian Keith Elliott, 28, of Red Deer also faces eight new charges from Thursday’s arrest — six counts of failing to comply with a recognizance, and one count each of possession of stolen property over $5,000 and operating a motor vehicle while disqualified.

Elliott was remanded in custody to appear in Red Deer provincial court on Friday.
