The ex-RCMP officer has been charged with making a false statement to procure a passport, fraud under $5,000, obstruction of justice and failure to comply with a recognizance condition, ASIRT said.

Sayler was convicted of several offences on Sept. 28, 2018. He was released on the same day pending sentencing with multiple conditions including that he provide court with his passport, which he did, ASIRT said.

Sayler is a former member of the Spruce Grove/Stony Plain RCMP.

ASIRT said it will not be releasing any more information on the new charges because the matter is now before the court and details regarding his bail are under a publication ban.
