Langford man arrested, sent to Alberta to face charges

Peter Nicholas Kemp, 30, faces theft and fraud charges

A Langford man arrested by West Shore RCMP is off to Alberta to face a number of outstanding warrants.

West Shore RCMP arrested Peter Nicholas Kemp, 30, on June 29 and he was taken to court on the same day to face a shoplifting charge resulting from a warrant originating in Saanich.

Kemp is also facing three counts of fraud over $5,000 and nine counts of breach of recognizance for offences alleged to have occurred in Saanich and Alberta between April 2014 and April 2015.

RCMP investigators from Thorsby, Alta. were in constant communication with investigators from the West Shore RCMP detachment, resulting in the arrest of Kemp without incident, West Shore RCMP Const. Alex Berube said in a media release.

Arrangements were made with Alberta court services to have Kemp transported to that province to face the charges, Berube said.
