Suspects from Ponoka charged in pawn shop theft

Ponoka RCMP say the two face several charges from Stampede Pawn incident

Ponoka RCMP charged two suspects with several violations from a Stampede Pawn break-in.

Police say that on March 7 a call of a break and enter at the Stampede Pawn shop determined that the main door had been breached where vehicles and other items were stolen.

“Police were dispatched to an abandoned vehicle, on Range Road 260 north of Menaik Road, that was one of the vehicles stolen from the pawn shop,” say police.

Officers found two suspects in a nearby field where they fled the scene, say police. Ponoka RCMP found them in Ponoka later on.

They face numerous charges including the theft of a truck and a motor vehicle, break and enter, flight from a peace officer, possession of stolen property over $5,000, operating a vehicle while prohibited, driving a vehicle without properly securing a licence plate, stunting and driving while uninsured.

The next day an abandoned vehicle was found on Township Road 422 that had been stolen from Stampede Pawn.
