A 39-year-old man from Red Deer faces more than 50 charges following Tuesday morning’s RCMP response to a motel in Innisfail.
According to RCMP, officers responded to the Super 8 motel shortly before noon following a complaint regarding a highly intoxicated man on the premises.
The suspect was located and officers determined the man was under conditions that restricted him from being in a licensed establishment. The man was arrested and a key fob was found in his possession. RCMP officials say the fob led them to a stolen vehicle in parking lot and a search of the vehicle resulted in the seizure of weapons and drugs.
As a result of the investigation, Kent Leigh Nichol of Red Deer County was arrested. The 39-year-old faces numerous charges including:
- Possession for the purpose of trafficking (five counts)

- Possession of stolen property over $5,000
- Possession of stolen property under $5,000 (six counts)
