Ponoka RCMP are looking for two Caucasian men involved in a gas and dash on Saturday, Sept. 12.
At approximately 9:30 a.m., police received reports of a white Ford SRW driving away from a Highway 2A gas station with $109 worth of fuel.
Two Caucausian men wearing ball caps were involved in the theft, say police, and the truck was reported stolen out of Stettler. Police say a vehicle matching that description has been seen in nearby towns related to criminal activity.
A short time later police received reports of two men attempting to steal a truck. They were driving a stolen white Ford F350 with a licence plate of BPM 6557.
Driver on prohibition
Members of the Ponoka Integrated Traffic Unit conducted a check stop on Highway 2A on 50 Street on Tuesday, Sept. 8 nabbing a driver without a valid license.
After stopping the 40-year-old Edmonton driver of a 2008 silver Nissan Altima, officers found the man had a Canada-wide driving prohibition and no drivers licence.
He was charged and released on a promise to appear for driving while prohibited and the vehicle was seized for 30 days.
Intoxicated woman lodged in cells
Ponoka RCMP received a complaint of a woman walking in the middle of the road on the yellow lines on Sept 8 at 9 p.m.
Members attended and located a 27-year-old Maskwacis woman who was intoxicated walking in the middle of the lane at Hwy 2A and 50 Street. The woman was arrested for public intoxication and held in custody until she was sober.
Lifetime ban from store
After attempting to steal $20 worth of Advil, an 18-year-old Maskwacis woman received a lifetime ban from Shoppers Drug Mart.
Police say they received a call from the store and that the woman was in custody at the store. It is reported she was co-operative with staff and police.

The checks were held Sept. 11 and 13 during the times he is required to be home and he wasn’t. Police issued warrant for the arrest of the 40-year-old Ponoka man and he was charged with failing to comply with conditions.
