Red Deer RCMP arrest and charge prolific offender

Red Deer RCMP arrested and laid charges against a prolific offender who had several outstanding warrants.

Lee Pratt, 26, was identified as part of Red Deer RCMP’s crime reduction strategy Pinpoint, which targets repeat and chronic offenders.

Pratt was arrested without incident Feb. 6, and was allegedly found in possession of a sawed-off .22 rifle, ammunition and drugs for the purpose of trafficking.

Pratt faces nine drug and weapon related charges and remains in custody. He is scheduled to appear in Red Deer provincial court Wednesday.
