Mounties in Ponoka are touting the benefits of reporting suspicious activity to police following the arrest of a 32-year-old man who now faces 95 charges in relation to a stolen property investigation.

On August 8, RCMP received a report of a suspicious vehicle parked at a commercial location on 46 Avenue in Ponoka.

It’s alleged a male suspect at the scene was siphoning fuel from a piece of heavy equipment, with police determining the vehicle was stolen.

As a result, Mounties seized other stolen items including license plates, mail, tools and a stereo.

A holiday trailer being pulled by the truck was also stolen and recovered by RCMP.

Christian Singer of no fixed address faces 95 charges including failing to comply with conditions of recognizances, theft over $5,000, theft under $5,000 and possession of stolen mail among others.

Singer has been remanded in custody for a Ponoka court appearance August 17.
