Ponoka RCMP recovered a stolen vehicle, arrested a man wanted on warrants and laid numerous charges after a call about suspicious activity.
On Dec. 6, at around 10 p.m., police received a call from a homeowner saying he saw people on his rural property in a vehicle. He reported this as suspicious activity and wanted RCMP assistance.
Three males were seen leaving on foot southbound on Township Road 432.
Shortly after 10:20 p.m., RCMP spotted the suspects and took them into custody without incident. It was determined that the vehicle had previously been reported stolen.
The vehicle had been involved in a collision and suffered extensive damage, and the suspects were abandoning it.
Domanick Keith Patrick Fraynn is facing 12 charges, including obstructing a peace officer, two counts of failing to comply with conditions of an undertaking and six charges of possession of stolen property.
Police allege Fraynn was in possession of several stolen items, including a driver’s licence, wallet and debit card.
At the time of his arrest, Fraynn was wanted on arrest warrants for previous weapons charges and a charge of failing to appear in court.
Two other supects were released from custody with no charges.
Fraynn appeared in court in Wetaskiwin on Monday. He remains in custody and is next scheduled for court this Tuesday.
