A license plate check of a vehicle by the Ponoka Integrated Traffic Unit last week showed the vehicle and its contents were stolen.

The car, a black 1999 Honda Civic was parked on Highway 2A and further investigation showed there was a stolen vehicle identification number on the dashboard as well.

Inside the Honda were other stolen items from Red Deer such as computers, credit cards, identification and wallets.

Occupants in the vehicle have been charged with different offenses. The 38-year-old male driver from Red Deer, who was recently released from the Centennial Centre for Mental Health and Brain Injury, received seven counts of possession of stolen property. He also received charges of driving while unauthorized and had warrants for his arrest.

A 29-year-old Red Deer woman, who was a passenger in the vehicle, also received charges of possession. The man was denied bail.

Ponoka man charged with assault

An argument between a couple took a turn for the worse last week as police had to intervene between the two.

A 911 call from a home on the 4600 block of 38 Avenue heard screaming and yelling in the background. Upon arrival at the home, police found a 24-year-old Ponoka man outside the home. It was reported to officers that the man tackled the woman and assaulted her. To avoid further attacks, she locked herself in the bathroom with her children, one of whom was a newborn child.

Aggressive driver found with marijuana

Officers received a call of the driver of a purple 2008 Pontiac G6 refusing to change lanes southbound on Highway 2 Dec. 20 at noon.

It is reported the 23-year-old driver gave other motorists the middle finger and drove aggressively around them. Police say an odor of marijuana emanated from the vehicle once it was eventually pulled over. The St. Albert man admitted to having drugs and showed police where a small amount of marijuana and hashish were stored in the vehicle.

He was charged with possession of a controlled substance, received a 24-hour suspension and his vehicle was towed.

Driver refuses to provide breath sample

Police pulled over a 53-year-old Hobbema man after noticing his vehicle driving in the opposite lane Dec. 21 at 4 a.m. on Bobtail Road.

He was charged with impaired driving and refusing to provide a breath sample.
