Hanna RCMP arrested a woman from Drumheller after a traffic stop determined the vehicle she was in had been reported stolen.
On Tuesday, August 29, a Hanna RCMP officer conducted a traffic stop of a minivan in the parking lot of a Hanna business.
The driver was found to be unlicensed and in violation of a release order which prohibited her from being behind the wheel of a motor vehicle.
“Upon closer inspection of the vehicle, it was determined the license plate on the vehicle belonged to a different vehicle, and the vehicle itself had been reported stolen,” said Hanna RCMP Sergeant Rob Welsman.
The driver, who was identified as 53-year-old Wanda Charlton of Drumheller, was arrested and charged with possession of stolen property under $5,000, and failure to comply with a release order.
Charlton will make her next court appearance in Alberta Court of Justice in Hanna on Wednesday, October 25.
