A 30 year-old Regina male is facing charges in connection with a police investigation that involved Emergency Services teams (Canine, Crisis Negotiators and SWAT) in the execution of high-risk search warrant on Thursday, November 16, 2017.
The search warrant was obtained on Thursday, November 16, 2017, for a house in the 2000 block Princess Street, as part of an ongoing investigation. Investigators believed firearms would be present at that location, making the execution of the search warrant a high-risk operation. For that reason, the warrant was executed with the help of Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT), Crisis Negotiators and Canine members. As of 4:30 p.m., seven people (two females and five males) were negotiated out of the house and taken safely into police custody. A search of premises yielded dozens of rounds of ammunition, a small quantity of a substance believed to be methamphetamine and items believed to be used in drug trafficking (scale, baggies, packaging, cutting agent). Further investigation led to the release of all but one of the occupants of the house. This individual faces charges for breaches of court-ordered conditions. The investigation is ongoing.
Thirty year-old Stuart Michael George SABISTON, DOB: 1987-07-11, of Regina, is charged with:
– 2 x Possession of Ammunition Contrary to Prohibition, section 117.01(1) CC; and
– Breach of Probation, section 733.1(1) CC.
SABISTON made his first court appearance on these charges in Provincial Court at 9:30 a.m. on Friday, November 17, 2017.
