Five young persons, all between the ages of 12 and 15, have been arrested and charged, following a stolen vehicle incident last night (Sunday) in Regina.
On January 21, 2018, just before midnight, a canine officer spotted a vehicle that had been reported stolen. The blue, Chevy Cobalt was in the area of 7th Avenue and Cameron Street. Other patrol units came to the area to assist. The vehicle was observed driving in the North Central neighbourhood and Evraz Place and eventually came to a stop in the 1500 block Retallack. Two canine teams and patrol members located five suspects who had fled from the vehicle: three female youths, two 14 year-olds and 15 year-old; as well as two male youths, ages 12 and 13. Further investigation into the activities of the young persons led to charges against all five.
The young persons, who cannot be named in accordance with the provisions of the Youth Criminal Justice Act are jointly charged with Possession of Property Obtained by Crime, under $5,000 (car), [355(b) CC]. The 15 year-old female, one of the 14 year-old females, 13 year-old male, and 12 year-old male are each also charged with breaching court-ordered conditions.
All five accused appeared in Youth Court at 2:00 p.m. on Monday, January 22, 2018 (today).
