DSC 0211

Hanna RCMP have arrested a man who was caught trying to remove a license plate from a vehicle on a private property.
On Wednesday, October 4, a resident of Hanna observed a male approaching the rear of her vehicle, which was parked on her private property.
When the male crouched down by her license plate, she confronted him and observed him attempting to remove the license plate. The male ran off and was later located and arrested by the Hanna RCMP.
During the arrest he was found to be breaching a condition of his probation order.
Hanna RCMP Sergeant Rob Welsman stated, “Surveillance cameras were of help in this instance because it not only alerted the homeowner to what was going on, but also made identification of the suspect much easier.”
Scott Douglass Klatt, a 36 year old resident of Hanna, has been charged with one count of mischief and one count of breaching a probation order condition.
After a Judicial Interim Release Hearing, the male was released and will appear at Alberta Court of Justice in Hanna on Wednesday, October 25.
