A Ponoka man has been charged with 95 counts after Ponoka RCMP conducted a stolen property investigation.
Christian Singer, 32, of no fixed address, will appear in Ponoka provincial court Aug. 17 on charges of theft over $5,000, theft under $5,000, possession of stolen mail and failing to comply with release conditions.
On Aug. 8 RCMP received a report of a suspicious vehicle parked at a commercial location on 46 Ave. in Ponoka. RCMP found the accused allegedly siphoning fuel from a piece of heavy equipment that was parked. The vehicle was stolen and police arrested Singer.
