A Stettler man charged in a car-jacking last year has been released on house arrest.

Stettler RCMP say Morley Roland Savage, 21, was released into his own recognizance after attending court in Red Deer Feb 7 but slated to attend Provincial Court in Stettler on Feb. 28.

It was on Dec. 10, 2018 at approximately 10:10 a.m., when Stettler Mounties received a complaint of an armed robbery.

Police say the victim had provided the suspect a ride to the Stettler area where he produced a firearm, told the victim to leave the area on foot and stole the vehicle.

The victim was not injured during the encounter but the ensuing investigation between Stettler and Red Deer RCMP identified Morley as the suspect believed responsible.  

Then on Dec. 13 at approximately 8:30 a.m., Lacombe Police located the victim's vehicle and arrested a suspect found to be in possession of it.

Morley Savage has been charged with robbery with a firearm, careless use of a firearm, using a firearm in the commission of an offence and additional related offences.
