Man tries to sell stolen vehicle to Ponoka dealership

RCMP have laid more than 20 charges against a man, following an attempt to sell a stolen truck to a Ponoka car dealership.

RCMP were dispatched to the dealership Saturday afternoon after an alert employee determined that a truck the man was trying to trade in was stolen.

The suspect allegedly had all the documentation for the vehicle, as well as what appeared to be identification.

The RCMP confirmed the truck had been stolen and took the man into custody.

Police discovered several pieces of stolen identification had been altered, and the RCMP were able to establish the proper identification of the suspect.

Brendyn Donald Roger Beaulieu, 28, is facing several charges, including trafficking in property obtained by crime over $5,000, identity theft and identity fraud.

At the time of his arrest, Beaulieu was on release on three different justice of the peace recognizances.

Beaulieu remains in custody. He is scheduled for a close-circuit TV appearance in Wetaskiwin provincial court Tuesday.

The owner of the truck has recovered the truck’s identification documentation, as well as a piece of jewellery that was stolen during a break and enter to his residence.
