A man is facing numerous charges after extensive damage was done over the weekend to the Provincial Building and Court House in Edson.

Around 9:30 am on May 11th, Edson RCMP received a complaint of damage done to the Provincial Building.

A man stole a vehicle from the ATCO Electric compound next to the building and drove through the fence.

He then drove through the east entrance of the Provincial Building and continued driving through before exiting out the west side.

Anti-Semitic messaging was written throughout the building.

35-year-old Kelvin Brent Zawadiuk of Edson has been charged with break and enter, dangerous operation of a motor vehicle, theft of truck, two counts of mischief under $5000 and two counts of failing to comply with a probation order.

Police are still investigating, but Zawadiuk has been remanded into custody and is due in Whitecourt Provincial Court on May 14th.
