PEI Man Convicted For Crime Committed in Wood Buffalo Five Years Ago

A Prince Edward Island man is being convicted for a crime he committed in Fort McMurray over five years ago.

Back on October 7, 2013, the Wood Buffalo Integrated Traffic Unit stopped a 30-year-old for speeding on Highway 63 near the Confederation Way overpass.

He ended up giving police a false name and was subsequently arrested.

After an investigation, ITU officers discovered the man’s real name and found he had an outstanding Canada-wide driving prohibition.

He was charged for driving while prohibited and for obstructing a peace officer.

The man was officially convicted on Monday after several delays to get him to come to Fort McMurray from PEI.

He was fined $8,700 and was given a further one-year Canada-wide driving prohibition.
