Intoxicated youth found with stolen vehicle

While responding to a report of a stolen vehicle Oct. 8 at 7:15 p.m., police located the vehicle north of Secondary Highway 611.

As Maskwacis RCMP officers approached the vehicle, a suspect fled on foot and was later found in some bushes near the roadway. Police say the youth was intoxicated and was lodged in cells until sober. He was later charged with possession of stolen property.

Alcohol a factor in collision

Police and emergency crews attended the scene of a single vehicle collision Oct. 10 near Morningside on Highway 2A at 1:30 a.m.

While EMS crews treated the 40-year-old Ponoka driver, he admitted to consuming alcohol and officers also smelled an odor of liquor from the man. He was transported to the Red Deer Regional Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

The matter is under still investigation.
