Door knocker lands in jail

Intoxicated individual now facing charges

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.

Ponoka RCMP remind the public to contact them at 403-783-4472 if they have any information regarding criminal activity or the whereabouts of any suspects. Those wishing to stay anonymous are urged to contact CrimeStoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477), where information leading to an arrest, seizing of drugs or recovering of stolen property may be eligible for a reward.
