Alberta Mounties arrest man after tires slashed on four RCMP cruisers

VEGREVILLE, Alta. — An RCMP detachment east of Edmonton has been going through a lot of tires.

Mounties say they have arrested a man after the tires of four police cruisers were slashed at the Vegreville detachment earlier this month.

Jason Larry Kotowich, who is 35, has been charged with three counts of mischief under $5,000, resisting arrest and breaching a probation order.

Police say he is in custody, has been denied bail and is to appear in provincial court on Feb. 1. 

Last April a cruiser had its tires slashed at the detachment.
