A traffic stop resulted in the arrest of two men in Sherwood Park.
The Capital East Integrated Traffic Unit (ITU) conducted a traffic stop on Baseline Road and Highway 216 for a speeding violation on Apr.12.
The two men in the vehicle acted suspicious, prompting police to investigate. After searching the vehicle officers seized cash, several envelopes with packages containing driver's licenses and Social Insurance Numbers with a photo of the male passenger just with different names and date of birth. The two men were arrested.
James Stiles, 57, is facing the following charges, forgery, possession of stolen property and obstruction.
Jarae Henry, 32, is facing the following charges, forgery, possession of stolen property, three counts of failing to comply with conditions of undertaking/recognizance.
"Integrated Traffic Units across Alberta play a pivotal role in reducing crime and keeping our communities safe by taking travelling criminals and fraudsters off our streets. ITU's operational work helps the RCMP provide effective and intelligence-led policing service for all Albertans," said Capital East ITU Staff Sergeant Don Murray.
The investigation is ongoing and further charges are anticipated.
