A 28-year-old Lloydminster, Alberta man with connections to this province is facing a charge of possession of stolen property following a traffic stop by the Deer Lake RCMP on Sunday.
Police stopped the pickup the man was driving at 2:15 a.m. in Deer Lake. The truck was towing an enclosed trailer. The office checked the licence plates on both vehicles and found the plate attached to the trailer did not match the trailer.
Further investigation revealed the 30-foot trailer had been reported stolen in Alberta in April.
The man was released from custody and is scheduled to appear in provincial court in September.
