A 32 year-old Regina male is facing charges after an incident yesterday which began with an allegation that a male threatened another male with what appeared to be a handgun.
Several police units were dispatched, at about 12:18 p.m. on Wednesday, April 25, 2018, to a business parking lot in the 2700 block of Avonhurst Drive for a report of a potential firearm. Information received in the call indicated there were two males involved in verbal dispute when one male showed the other what appeared to a firearm. The suspect male had left the scene before police arrived, but with a vehicle description, officers were able to locate the vehicle a short time later, parked in the 1200 block of McEachern Drive. Investigation led to the arrest, without incident, of a 32 year-old male. Further investigation, including a search, led to the recovery of a quantity of marijuana, scales, and Canadian currency in various denominations. There was no firearm located. The male was subsequently charged.
Thirty-two year-old Rohan PYNE, of Regina, is charged with Possession of Cannabis Marijuana for the Purpose of Trafficking [5(2) CDSA]; Possession of the Proceeds of Crime under $5,000 [355(b) CC]. The accused will make his first court appearance on these charges in Provincial Court at 9:30 a.m. on June 5, 2018.
