Innisfail RCMP arrest male after attempt to flee from police

The Ottawa man faces a few charges

On Dec. 7th at approximately 7:30 a.m., a lone Innisfail RCMP member observed a vehicle parked at the Esso gas station in Penhold Alta. Police observed a vehicle parked at the pumps and the license plate on the vehicle was confirmed by police to be stolen. When police attempted to arrest the lone male driver he refused to comply and attempted to drive away. Police were forced to break the driver side window and an altercation ensued which resulted in some customers at the store responding to assist the lone police officer. The male was successfully removed from the vehicle and arrested without further incident. There were no injuries resulting from this incident. The vehicle the male was driving was also confirmed by police as stolen.

Shaun Paul Martin, 35, of Ottawa, Ont. has been charged with possession of stolen property over $5,000, obstructing police, resisting arrest, driving without subsisting driver’s license, operating an uninsured motor vehicle and failing to stop for police.
