A 34 year-old male from Indian Head was in Provincial Court today facing 13 charges relating to Break, Enter and Theft and Possession of Stolen Property in Regina.
These charges result from ongoing police investigation into property crime in Regina. In mid-November, police received a report of a male trying to sell tires from the box of a truck to a local business. The truck, which was determined to be a stolen vehicle, was later recovered with several items of stolen property in it. Through the course of this investigation, officers also obtained evidence linking the suspect to two Break and Enters which occurred on December 13th and December 17th at residences on Wesson Bay and the 3600 block of East Bishop Crescent, respectively. Police were able to positively identify the suspect in the case; this same suspect was, by then in closed custody, facing charges on an RCMP case of Dangerous Drive and Evade Police from December 21, 2014. Regina Police Service members went to the Regina Correctional Centre to arrest the suspect on numerous new charges, relating to the December 13th and December 17th Break and Enters and other matters.
