A woman was arrested after allegedly driving a stolen vehicle.
The RCMP’s south auto theft unit was conducting surveillance on a known prolific offender in Olds on Tuesday.
Officers spotted a truck with a stolen licence plate outside a residence. A woman left the house, and a short time later, was arrested with the assistance of Olds RCMP.
It was determined the truck had been stolen in Innisfail.
Police say the ignition had been “punched,” and several break-in tools and items of stolen property were located in the vehicle. The driver was also in possession of what’s suspected to be methamphetamine.
Starr Audrey Bowman, 31, of Olds, was wanted on several outstanding warrants, including offences related to failing to attend court and possession of a stolen credit card.
She is facing 14 new charges, including several counts of possession of stolen property, possession of break-in instruments and possession of a controlled substance.
Bowman will appear in court Thursday in Calgary.
