An Okotoks man is facing a long list charges after over a dozen stolen vehicles and trailers were recovered.

On April 7, Vulcan RCMP responded to a stolen vehicle complaint with a male suspect fleeing the Vulcan property when officers arrived.

He was apprehended and arrested soon after, and an officer received minor injuries during the suspect's flight.

Two days later, the Southern Alberta District Crime Reduction Unit, RCMP Auto Theft Unit, and Vulcan RCMP executed a search warrant on a Vulcan County property ad found several vehicles stolen from Calgary:

  • 12 stolen pick up trucks
  • A stolen travel trailer
  • 2 stolen utility trailers
  • 2 stolen dirt bikes

They also found evidence that led them to a second property which they believe was being used as a chop shop.

The owners of the respective vehicles have been notified.

As a result, 30-year-old William McIntosh of Okotoks is facing the following charges:

  • Flight from police,
  • Assault on a police officer causing bodily harm,
  • Resist arrest,
  • Fail to comply with release conditions (x6),
  • Possession of property obtained by crime over $5000,  
  • Possession of property obtained by crime under $5000,
  • Possession of a controlled substance- crystal meth,
  • Possession of a controlled substance- fentanyl.

He's been remanded into custody and will be appearing in court in Lethbridge on April 26.
