Drumheller man pleads guilty to possession of stolen property

Courthouse1

A Drumheller man pleaded guilty to possession of stolen property over $5,000 after selling a stolen truck.
Jeffery Morse appeared in provincial court in Drumheller on Friday, September 17, to make his plea.
The court heard Morse purchased a 2018 Toyota RAV4 from Kijiji, and was aware the price he purchased it for was far below market price, and admitted he was willfully blind.
He registered it and drove it for a year before he sold it to another individual.
When the purchaser attempted to have the vehicle registered it was discovered it was stolen.
It appears the Vehicle Identification Number was swapped.
Morse was given a suspended sentence with 12 months probation, as well as an order to pay the purchaser $18,000.
