A Calgary man is facing multiple charges after Olds RCMP discovered him illegally parked in a stolen car with the wrong license plates.
The incident happened on April 13 around 2:15 a.m. in the area of 55th Street and 63rd Avenue in Olds. Police checked the plates of a vehicle they spotted illegally parked on the wrong side of the street, where they found the plates weren’t associated with that particular car.
