Video obtained showed a male wearing women’s clothing. The suspect stole a large amount of jewellery and women’s footwear. This file remains under investigation.

On May 2 at approximately 11 p.m., the Ponoka Integrated Traffic Unit were making patrols along Highway 2A near 48th Avenue in Ponoka.

A traffic stop was conducted on a dark blue pick up and a 45-year-old male driver blew a fail on an approved screening device. The male was arrested and charged with impaired by alcohol and impaired operation over .08 while his vehicle was also towed.

On May 6 shortly after midnight, Ponoka RCMP received a complaint of a break and enter in progress. Upon checking the active video surveillance, the complainant could see two suspects in the garage at the residence.
