A man knocked on a few too many doors and is now facing several charges.
On Jan. 28, officers from the Ponoka RCMP detachment were called to complaints from a number of homeowners along 46 Street regarding a man that was ringing doorbells along the street.
Police would soon locate a man, standing near a vehicle in a ditch nearby, that matched the description provided by many of the residents.
It wasn’t long before officers ascertained the man was intoxicated and did not have a driver’s licence. The vehicle was towed and the man was charged with numerous offences.
Charges include impaired operation of a vehicle, impaired by alcohol over 0.08, operation of an uninsured vehicle, operating a vehicle without a valid licence and failure to produce valid insurance.
