Public tip results in arrest of wanted male by Ponoka RCMP

Fraynn appeared in court in Wetaskiwin on Dec. 9

Domanick Keith Patrick Fraynn, age and residency not disclosed, was arrested on outstanding warrants for weapons charges and is facing serveral new charges after a rural-Ponoka property owner reported suspicious activity to police.

When Ponoka RCMP responded to the call just after 10 p.m. on Dec. 6, it lef to the recovery of a stolen vehicle and the arrest of Fraynn.

The homeowner told police he saw people on his property in a vehicle. He felt this was suspicious activity and wanted RCMP assistance. The males were seen leaving on foot southbound on Township Road 432.

Shortly after 10:20 p.m., the RCMP located the males and took them into custody without incident. It was determined that the vehicle was previously reported stolen. A scene examination revealed that the vehicle was involved in a collision and suffered extensive damage. The males were abandoning the vehicle.

Investigation determined that only one of the three males would face charges in relation to this incident, and the other two males were released from custody with no charges.

Fraynn is facing 12 criminal code charges including: obstructing a peace officer, failure to comply with conditions of an undertaking (x2), and six charges of possession of stolen property. Fraynn was in possession of several stolen items including a driver’s license, wallet and debit card.

At the time of his arrest, Fraynn was wanted on arrest warrants for previous weapons charges and a failure to appear charge.

“We appreciate that the alert property owner recognized a suspicious situation and called the RCMP” says Corporal Chad Pushie of Ponoka RCMP. “We rely on community members to provide us information about what’s happening within their neighbourhood.”

Fraynn appeared in court in Wetaskiwin on Dec. 9, 2019. He remains in custody and is next scheduled for court on Dec. 17, 2019.
