Man sentenced for evading police in stolen vehicle

 An Airdrie man was given a one-year conditional sentence after pleading guilty to possession of stolen property and failing to stop for a peace officer.
    Mark Christopher Logan appeared in provincial court in Drumheller on Friday, January 27 where he pleaded guilty to the charges.
    The incident occurred on October 30, 2011. Logan was in a rural area hunting with permission from a landowner. The vehicle he possessed at the time was parked at the side of a road and came to the attention of a resident who reported it, believing it may have been abandoned.
    RCMP attended and determined the vehicle was stolen. Around the same time Logan returned to the vehicle and drove away from the police. He travelled over a field and eventually entered Highway 56 and made away.
    In early December he attended to the Drumheller RCMP and made a confession. He indicated he has recently purchased the vehicle, which was found to be stolen.
    Judge Grieve sentenced Logan to a one-year conditional sentence in which he is bound by a curfew. He also received a one-year driver’s licence suspension.
