Unity RCMP arrested Jason Lee Morgan, age 38 of the Kerrobert District, after he was caught by some Unity area residents who accused him of defrauding them by taking money to plant trees and not doing so. The Unity area residents used farm implements to prevent MORGAN from leaving their yard and called the RCMP. Morgan was wanted by the RCMP in Kerrobert for fraud under $5,000 and had warrants for his arrest from Watrous RCMP for break and enter, theft of a motor vehicle, and obtaining food and lodgings fraudulently. Morgan is also facing criminal charges in Alberta. Unity RCMP are investigating Morgan’s business dealings in and around the Unity area and encourage anyone who may have provided him with money to contact the RCMP and provide details of the dealings to them.
