The Regina Police Service is continuing its investigation into the discovery, on Tuesday, November 17th, of a cache of firearms in Regina’s south end.
As the result of recent firearms incidents in the 4500 and 4600 blocks of Albert Street, police were conducting door-to-door inquiries, on November 17th, with residents and businesses in that area. Out of these investigative efforts, police located a number of firearms in an easement. These were secured and seized; police also identified some individuals as persons of interest in the investigation. Because the discovery of the firearms was relatively near to Campbell Collegiate, the high school was placed in a secure-the-building mode. At approximately 2:45 p.m., police located four male youths (under 18) inside the school; they were taken into custody, without incident, to be interviewed, but not placed under arrest (as previous news stories have indicated). All four individuals were interviewed and released; they were not placed under arrest. No one has been charged at this time in connection with the discovery of the firearms in the easement; however, that investigation is ongoing.
The Regina Police Service thanks the public and the media for their concern and co-operation in this matter. As with any other investigation, anyone who has information to assist police is asked to contact the Regina Police Service at 306-777-6500. Information can also be offered anonymously through Crime Stoppers in one of the following ways: call 1-800-222-8477; go to www.reginacrimestoppers.ca; *8477 from SaskTel cellular; or text “TIP158” and your tip message to “CRIMES (274637)”.
