A Stony Plain man is facing charges after fleeing from police last week.
Just before 4 am on November 7th, Parkland RCMP attempted to stop a vehicle for having no tail lights when it failed to pull over. After several attempts by police to get the vehicle to stop, it was located a short time later after crashing into a power pole. The driver was found nearby walking on the road uninjured.
In the vehicle, police found a sawed-off rifle, ammunition, methamphetamine, and items related to drug use.

-Operate a conveyance while prohibited from doing so
-Possession of stolen vehicle over $5000

Cuvilier remains in custody and will appear in Whitecourt Provincial Court today, November 12th.
