When police attended the scene on Sunday January 11, 2015, they located a vehicle stuck in the snow – leading into an investigation.

A search of the vehicle discovered “a number of stolen items” and instruments used to break and enter.

“Anyone who has had their vehicle broken into recently in the area of 110 Street and 84 Avenue, reported or not, and/or had items stolen from their vehicle in that area is encouraged to contact the Grande Prairie RCMP at 780 830 5701,” Cst. Ellen Archibald says.

He is also facing three charges under the Traffic Safety Act.
