On Saturday afternoon, around 3:00 pm, Morse RCMP responded to a report of a suspicious truck parked outside the Credit Union in Morse.
Upon arrival, officers found the truck had left the area. They then located the truck westbound on Highway 1 at Herbert and were able to determine the truck had been stolen earlier in the day from Indian Head.
Officers attempted to stop the truck, but it fled and was later located stuck north of Rush Lake, where police arrested the male driver.
A search of the truck and surrounding area found stolen property, a prohibited modified firearm, and a small quantity of methamphetamine.
As a result, 29-year-old Thomas Chartrand faces several charges including flight from police, dangerous operation of a motor vehicle, possession of property obtained by crime, theft, and 8 firearms charges.
Chartrand appeared in court Wednesday and remains in custody until his next scheduled appearance on March 3rd.
