Four corraled in execution of warrant

Two remain in custody after stolen property, drugs siezed

Four people were arrested and a quantity of drugs seized after a stolen truck was located in Ponoka

An officer from Ponoka found a reported stolen Dodge truck while on patrol in “an identified crime hot spot area near downtown on Nov. 1,” stated a press release from Ponoka RCMP.

The truck, which was stolen from Stettler on Oct. 23, was recovered and arrests made at the residence the vehicle was found at. Police from Ponoka and Maskwacis then waited for a search warrant, which was executed that day.

A search of the home was conducted where officers found and seized methamphetamine, though the amount found was not released.

Sarah Alderson, 23, as well as 38 year-old Jeffrey Morse, 50 year-old Alicia Pastuck and 62 year-old Harold Potts were taken into custody and face a number of charges.

Alderson, who had five outstanding warrants from Drumheller when arrested, is charged with two counts of possession of property obtained by crime and one count of failure to comply with court ordered conditions. Morse, who also had an outstanding warrant, faces the same three charges.

Pastuck has been charged with two counts of possession of property obtained by crime.

Meanwhile, Potts is facing a single count of methamphetamine for the purpose of trafficking

Both Pastuck and Alderson have been released on bail, while Potts and Morse were remanded to custody.

All four are set to have their first court appearance on Nov. 8 in Ponoka.
