Man to face charges after several vehicles stolen


Stolen vehicle charges from Olds, Redcliff and Medicine Hat have landed one man in jail.  Medicine Hat Police say that on August 19th they ran a license plate on a dodge truck that came back as stolen.  The driver sped away before the officer could stop him.  A day later 3 more vehicles were reported stolen from Redcliff and Medicine Hat.  That afternoon, a member of the public spotted one of the stolen vehicles headed into the city and called police.  The car pulled into a motel on 1st Street SW where police made the arrest.  46 year old Harvey Matheson of no fixed address now faces a dozen charges including theft and breaching recognizance from Red Deer for similar offences.  He will remain in jail until appearing in Medicine Hat court on September 1st.
