Jail time has been served to a Central Alberta woman who went on a lengthy crime spree.

36-year-old Joanne Henke, from Ponoka, faced multiple charges including possession of stolen property, resisting a peace officer, possession of property obtained by crime, and theft of a motor vehicle all spanning across central and southern Alberta, including Rocky Mountain House, Consort and Brooks.
On July 27, Rocky Mountain House RCMP responded to a complaint of a Ford F350 on fire near Caroline. The truck was determined to have been stolen from Swift Current, Saskatchewan.

Upon arrival, RCMP were unable to locate the driver who had fled into the woods. The K9 service was called in and after a brief search in the darkness, RCMP were able to apprehend the fleeing 36-year-old suspect.
Henke is to serve eight months in jail.
