Innisfail RCMP says charges have been laid against a 35-year-old man after he was found in possession of drugs and a stolen motorbike.

On April 13, police on patrol found a driver on a motorcycle that did not have a licence plate.

RCMP members attempted a traffic stop but the driver "did not stop and accelerated at a high rate of speed," police said in a news release.

The motorcyclist "drove through numerous stop signs without stopping and cut off other motorists."

They then lost control on a patch of gravel and crashed the bike.

The driver attempted to flee the area on foot but was arrested a short time later.

A subsequent investigation determined the motorcycle was stolen and its VIN had been tampered with.

RCMP also found that the driver was suspended and was in possession of a small amount of methamphetamine and fentanyl.

The suspect is charged with a number of offences, including possession of stolen property, drug possession and evading arrest.

He is expected in the Alberta Court of Justice in Red Deer on April 16. Top Stories
