Fort Saskatchewan RCMP has charged a man with vehicle theft. 

Last Monday (Jan. 23), local RCMP received a disturbance complaint at a Lamont County residence. 

Upon arrival, police say that 30-year-old Mackenzie Thornton, a resident of Chipman, had fled the scene in a stolen vehicle. 

A coordinated response was used and RCMP eventually arrested Thornton and charged him with the following:

  • Failure to comply with release conditions
  • Flight from police
  • Driving while prohibited
  • Mischief under $5000
  • Theft of a vehicle

Thornton has been remanded and will be in provincial court next week.
