Strathmore RCMP have recovered a truck and trailer stolen from a High River residence over the weekend.

Police say, around 4:15 a.m. Monday, January 30, an RCMP Officer pulled the truck and trailer over in Strathmore, but as soon as the truck stopped the driver hopped out fleeing on foot through industrial and residential areas.

With the help of the K Division Police Dog Services, the man was found shortly after and arrested by Strathmore RCMP.

During a search of the vehicle Mounties found numerous weapons including a loaded semi automatic hand gun, and a pair of sawed off shotguns.

35-year-old Jonathon Bartram is facing a total of 17 criminal charges.

The charges include 10 counts of possession of a firearm contrary to prohibition order, four counts of failing to comply with a recognizance, two counts of possession of property obtained by crime over $5000, and resisting a Peace Office.
