A 37 year-old Regina male is facing charges in connection with the possession of a stolen vehicle and other items. He was also arrested on several outstanding warrants.
On Tuesday, February 13, 2017, at about 3:34 a.m., police officers on patrol noted a truck parked in an alley in the area of 2nd Avenue and Rose Street. When police approached, they saw the vehicle was running, but there was a person slumped behind the steering wheel. One officer entered the passenger side of the vehicle to turn off the truck and saw that there was no key and the ignition was damaged. The officers identified themselves to the driver and took this individual into custody. The truck had four full 55-gallon drums of gasoline in the back, and police found evidence of the impending sale of the gasoline, which by now was believed to be stolen property. Investigation into this incident led to several charges against the male in possession of the vehicle and contents. Police also found a gasoline card-lock type of credit card, which was confirmed stolen in January from outside of Regina. The male was also found to be the subject of several outstanding warrants.
Thirty-seven year-old Jason John DUNLOP, of Regina, is charged with:
– 3 x Possession of Property Obtained by Crime under $5,000 [355(b) CC];
– Possession of Property Obtained by Crime over $5,000 [355(a) CC]; and
– Theft of Motor Vehicle [333.1(1) CC].
DUNLOP made his first appearance on these charges in Provincial Court at 2:00 p.m. Wednesday, February 14, 2018. Investigation into these matters is ongoing.
