Slave Lake, Alta - On May 13, 2019 at approximately 4:30 PM, Nathan Carifelle was arrested in Kinuso, AB by the Slave Lake RCMP. After receiving several tips that Carifelle was seen in Canyon Creek and was en-route to Kinuso, RCMP members converged on the area to affect an arrest. RCMP members were able to corner Carifelle near the Kinuso Mercantile and placed him under arrest.
Investigation into this matter has resulted in an additional fifteen Criminal Code charges against Carifelle. These charges are in addition to the warrant matters that had been outstanding. The new charges include offences of resisting arrest, possession of a loaded prohibited firearm, possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose, unlawful possession of a firearm and failure to comply with court conditions.
"Diligent observations made by the general public and timely reporting to police were paramount in bringing this matter to a safe conclusion" says Staff Sergeant John Spaans of the Slave Lake RCMP.
Carifelle will appear in Slave Lake Provincial Court. A court date has not been set.
