Strathmore RCMP Vehicle Stop for Speeding Leads to Arrest

Wheatland County, Alberta – On December 8, 2022 at approximately 4:20 p.m. while a Strathmore General Investigation Section (GIS) member was travelling to check a property, a vehicle was spotted travelling at approximately 148 km/hr on Highway 22X in the area of Range Road 255. A traffic stop was initiated with the vehicle which contained four occupants. The driver was found to be bound by a release conditions from an unrelated criminal matter, one of which enabled a search of the vehicle. A passenger was also bound by a release condition for a 24 hour per day curfew, and a weapons prohibition. A search of the vehicle yielded a number of items including a counterfeit drivers license with the passenger’s photo on it with other identification not belonging to him, and a can of bear spray.

As a result of release order violations and possession of identity documents both unauthorized and counterfeit, the passenger was arrested. During subsequent interactions with the passenger, photos of identification not belonging to him was observed on his cell phone. The passenger was transported to the Strathmore Detachment for a bail hearing while the remainder of occupants were released on scene.
