Stolen vehicles and stolen property have kept High River RCMP busy over the last week.

On Saturday, April 21, High River RCMP conducted a vehicle stop on Highway 23 with a truck that had a smashed out window and had been towing a flat deck trailer through the Town of High River.

Turns out the trailer was stolen and the driver of the truck, 54 year old Alfred Sharp was arrested and charged with two counts of possession of property obtained by crime, failing to comply with a probation order and possession of controlled substance.

The vehicle's passenger, 44 year old Joely Lambourn was also charged with two counts of possession of property obtained by crime, possession of a controlled substance, and three counts of breaching a recognizance.

A bail hearing was conducted and both accused were released to appear at the Okotoks Provincial Courthouse.
